Too many consulting firms, too few success stories
Security is the new band wagon companies are jumping on. Problem is that most security providers try to provide their "cookie cutter" answer to their clients' security or risk issues. Buying an off the shelf product is like using aspirin as a common fix to all physical ills. Companies should obtain a trusted advisor (answering only to the Board of Directors) who will evaluate the firm's risks, practices and policies and then to customize a plan to address those risks within an acceptable timeframe and budget.

It's a very murky field
Threat intelligence is inherently a murky thing. It purports to tell you unknown unknowns and the remedy is typically a tool or service they sell. But it's very hard to evaluate the quality or utlitity of the information this sell and serve up. There's no way to normalize what they publish vs what anyone publishes and often the information itself crosses into the innuendo and urban myth territory. Which is fine for your lawyers and regulatory staff who have processes to follow, audits to pass and checkboxes to check but beyond that it's a big question. Norse simply got caught first.
