Threat intelligence is information and data which cybersecurity professionals use to prepare for, as well as to detect and protect organizations and end users from cyber attacks carried out by malicious threat actors.

Actionable threat data pertaining to an organization’s information systems, networks, or digital assets is intended to inform cybersecurity and threat teams about potential risks and existing or emerging threats.  As cybercriminals continue to grow more sophisticated in their attack tactics, gathering and leveraging threat data is a critical element to protecting your infrastructure and assets against cyber attacks and building a proactive, rather than reactive, cyber defense strategy.
