HP Security Research Threat Intelligence Briefing - Episode 3

Thank you for subscribing to Episode 3 of the HP Security Research Threat Intelligence Briefing. This briefing covers the following topic:


Syrian Electronic Army: The Syrian Electronic Army is highlighted as a threat actor and their tactics and motivations are discussed. This group operates as a hacktivist organization based in Syria in support of the current Syrian government and plays an active role in the ongoing civil war. This episode highlights the importance this type of information plays in formulating the best strategy to combat associated threats.

Modern intelligence collection and analysis provides for increased situational awareness. When this intelligence is integrated with business decision processes, the limited resources of people and capital can be focused on the highest risk areas and the areas that will yield the highest return on investment. Leveraging this increased situational awareness effectively reduces the scope of concern for security organizations. Accurate and up to date situational awareness can make all the difference to an effective security strategy and may be one of the most critical components of an overall security program.
