Cyber Threat Intelligence:  It’s the latest trend and marketing phrase.  How is it really new or different? How is it distinct from threat feeds?  How does the IT security organization use intelligence to defense and be proactive?  This talk will be an operations level discussion of how an end to end cyber threat intelligence program works.  And how cyber threat intelligence flows across the enterprise.
