Know the threat actors to check which vectors they use to compromise your systems. If you’re part of a crowd-sourced threat intelligence exchange, you’ll gain better insight into both the threat actors and their methods of attack than you could ever learn on your own or through the threat data you’re collecting through the security point solutions you may have implemented.
