Setting Your CTI Process In Motion

Setting Your CTI Process In Motion

On 7 December 2022, ENISA CTI-EU 2022 took place in Brussels. I had the pleasure to present about putting how CTI teams can put their CTI process in motion. The problem statement was how CTI teams track the work they do and manage the CTI knowledge they produce. I elaborated on the value of workflow and case management for CTI teams and some basic ingredients for success.

ENISA Threat Landscape 2022 – Threat Actor Trends

On 3 November 2022, ENISA published its Threat Landscape 2022 report, which is the annual report of the EU Agency for Cybersecurity on the state of the cybersecurity threat landscape. This is the 10th edition of the ETL report and covers a reporting period from July 2021 to July 2022. ETL report is an annual must-read for most cyber security professionals (at least) within the EU. The report might look long at first glance (~150 pages), but it is split into separate sections:

FIRST CTI Symposium 2022 Recap

All good things come to an end! FIRST CTI Symposium 2022 took place on 1, 2, and 3 of November 2022 and was a BLAST! If I chose one word to summarise what I felt during the conference days, I would say COMMUNITY is the right one. 300 CTI people from all over the world got connected after 2,5 years of work and virtual conferences from their home office.

Guest Lecture @ DTU: “Welcome to the world of CTI”

A couple of months ago, my classmate Xenofon Fafoutis kindly invited me for a guest lecture at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science of the Technical University of Denmark. Thus, on 27th April I was pleased to present to DTU students the basic concepts of cyber threat intelligence, the current threat landscape (with a focus on ransomware and state-sponsored threats), as well as the CTI analyst skillset.

See below the slide deck of the lecture:

I would like to thank again Xenofon for inviting me and I really enjoyed the discussions :)

Top 25 CTI Presos for 2020 (pandemic version)

Hey folks! 2020 was a year to remember mostly because of non-CTI related stuff. Every year I write a blog post about my top CTI presentations but this time I am a little bit late (aren’t we still in 2020 mode in any case?).

Due to the pandemic, we had the opportunity to participate in many online conferences/summits and watch lots of presentations. See below (in random order) the CTI presentations I enjoyed most, learned something that I applied to my day-to-day work, and gave me insights into cyber threats and CTI practices.

Hopefully this year we will have more F2F conferences and interaction. Enjoy and stay safe!
