Nate Mendell participated in a Q&A withCyber Security Hub, discussing best practices for threat intelligence and the rise of cyberattacks.
“The most frequent point of failure is user error—“own goals,” like clicking on a malicious link or failing to update and patch. The utility of threat intelligence depends on not just conveying information to users but getting them to act on that information,” writes Nate. “The solution is user engagement, and the strategy for that varies by institution and can be anything from limiting system access to timely prompts. Even humor can be effective!”
