The current cybersecurity approaches are not sufficient for organizations to defend against the evolving cyber threat landscape. The organizations need to extract the cyber threat intelligence (CTI) that uncovers both known and unknown threats; thereby they can implement a more robust defensive mechanism. Furthermore, organizations need to perform intelligence-led security testing instead of conventional security testing approaches. Intelligence-led security testing provides contextual intelligence at every stage of testing that guides the security professionals to make appropriate decisions such as:
- How should the security testing be conducted?
- What attack methods should be simulated?
- Where should they focus their resources?
