Case Study: Securing Business with Human Intelligence

Using Internet threat intelligence to adapt to COVID-19 & redefine security operations

Background

The COVID-19 crisis has had a tremendous impact on the world and, overnight, organizations were faced with the disruption of operations and a surge of emerging threats.

Globally, systems were disrupted and ties were severed.

Challenge

In independent interviews conducted with CISOs across finance, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, and retail, the top concerns cited were:

  1. Third-Party & Supply Chain Risks
  2. Insider Threats While Working From Home
  3. Emerging Cybersecurity Threats
  4. Physical Security for Facilities

Advanced search on the Media Sonar platform using COVID-19 queries built by our experienced OSINT investigators.

Alongside these global issues, CISOs were dealing with constrained resources and needed to balance risk against economic costs. Operations shifted to adapt to a world in crisis from COVID-19. Each new program or solution adds a layer of complexity to security. The CISOs immediate objectives: adapt to meet the demands of a threat landscape in upheaval. Looking forward, they need to contribute to business continuity and risk management planning with an unknown future on the horizon. The solution could not simply be another technical control; human intelligence was required to navigate with so much uncertainty.
