Navigating Intelligence-Driven Cyber Defense

Intelligence-driven cyber defense operations and other similar phrases are commonly heard in industry today, but what is truly meant by this turn of phrase? In this talk, we aim to explore this topic as it relates to the cyber defense landscape and the imperative need for public sector agencies to have access to actionable up-to-date insights on known malicious actors’ tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). This enables network defenders to anticipate and respond to cyber threats. Knowing which cloud app or router a bad actor is going to target before the cyber attack hits can give government officials a competitive advantage against emerging threats — allowing them to maintain and strengthen their proactive cybersecurity posture.


How can cyber leaders harness analysis tools and finished intelligence to tailor threat data to their specific needs? And how can intelligence and analysis provide critical insights about a cyber attack’s nature, methods, and potential impact to help organizations carry out effective remediation strategies?


Join GovExec and Google Cloud Security for an engaging discussion on how trailblazing government leaders are leveraging intelligence-driven cyber defense strategies to remain at the forefront of public sector security operations. We’ll discuss how the continuous monitoring and adjustment of security policies allows real-time threat intelligence to identify and block suspicious activity.


Attendees will learn:

  • The benefits of integrating cyber threat intelligence and risk management teams to foster a dynamic cybersecurity strategy
  • Best practices for how intelligence can help cyber defenders stay ahead of evolving AI threats
  • How security experts are adopting risk-based decision-making to implement authentication measures, granular access controls, and the principle of least privilege
