Cyber Threat Intelligence make or buy / make AND buy
This round table will focus on sourcing of threat intelligence information. In the beginning, many companies focus on external providers. However, much value can be generated from the data you already have in your company. We will discuss the chances, benefits and pitfalls of leveraging internal data for cyber threat intelligence as well as combining such data with externally sourced cyber threat intelligence.

Cyber Threat Intelligence: set-up, harnessing stakeholders and IT security, getting started
Most companies starting a CTI service will have experience in IT and cyber security, and experienced professionals in these areas. Most FINMA-regulated firms will have risk officers and experience in assessing risks. But now risk should be directed by threats – what is outside, threatening the company, this needs to inform the company’s understanding of risk. How to harness existing resources to set up a CTI service, what are the requirements? This is a discussion, though based on certain pre-requisites that CTI needs, rather than a presentation of ready-made formulas.
Mark is a Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst at Credit Suisse, with experience in various branches of IT security and fraud since turn of the century.

2023 Challenges to Cyber Threat Intelligence – According to ChatGPT
ChatGPT was asked about emerging challenges for Cyber Threat Intelligence in 2023. The answer was worth considering during this panel discussion.
Increasing complexity and data volume, and the shortage of skilled analysts are topics which have been discussed extensively over the years. But regenerative artificial intelligence and natural language engines have the potential to dramatically change this field within a relatively short window of time. This technology can rapidly alleviate pain points related to massive data analysis and correlation, analyst shortages, and cyber threat intelligence report writing.
Lets explore together, and perhaps with the assistance of ChatGPT, the dramatic and likely changes coming our way.
