Updating the Lexicon: Sharing Threat Intelligence to Non-technical Audiences

There’s a lot more to sharing threat intelligence with customers than just dumping technical IoCs on them. With increasing pressure to improve from regulators, telcos should be including many more types of information than technical IOCs in their approach to threat intel sharing. At the same time, they need to get better at targeting only relevant information to unique customer segments. This talk will provide a framework for reconciling these two critical objectives while also living up to the letter and spirit of regulators’ expectations
