Topic Abstract: As more companies attempt to integrate threat intel and threat hunting into their security models, they are finding difficulties in leveraging their threat intelligence functions to gain the most value. Most firms are finding out that collecting the threat intelligence is the easy part, and the hurdles are shorting through a large amount of data to find what is of importance to their firm and then being able to action those pieces of threat intel in a way that show value.
