Threat intelligence is like driving a car down the road. You may think the best view is from a slight distance where you can anticipate and react. Too close, and your ability to react is compromised. Further out, your view becomes indistinct clutter, and beyond that, everything is hidden below the horizon. We maintain that the long over-the-horizon view is the most critical to future threat mitigation.
Threat actors come and go, but methodologies evolve. If you can anticipate an action, the actor is less consequential. Vulnerabilities are too often discovered because they were exploited rather than anticipated from a safe distance. When a disruptive new technology emerges, those that anticipate technology convergence survive. The unaware experience technology collision, and suffer the consequences. Future threat intelligence is the difference between a yield sign and an unmarked intersection. Subscribe to the future view.
