re: Creating And Maintaining A Custom Threat Profile
Great article John. Of course, threat feeds cost money, and gaining relevant and actionable intelligence from them is difficult and time-consuming (for the reasons you state and more) so security teams have a hard time proving their value as it is. Customized feeds will cost even more, so pitching management on them may be a hard sell. One way to gain additional value from the feeds you already have is to combine them with other data you already collect (such as NetFlow and HTTP metadata) to see not only connections to known bad IP addresses identified in the feeds, but also the before, the after, and any contextual behaviors that ultimately show you information well beyond the original threat feed. This approach reduces time-to-detection and remediation (and thus increases the business value of the feeds). That could provide the ammunition an organizations needs to encourage management to "upgrade" to more customized feeds.
