Best Practices in Cyber Intelligence

June 2018 Podcast
Jared Ettinger

Jared Ettinger describes preliminary findings and best practices in cyber intelligence identified through a study sponsored by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

“One of the things that we are seeing is high-performing organizations have really understood their environment. What I mean by that is they really know where their critical assets are, their critical technologies, their people, their data, their patent-pending technologies, the things that they really, really want to protect.”




The SEI Emerging Technology Center is conducting a study sponsored by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence to understand cyber intelligence best practices, common challenges, and future technologies that we will culminate in a published report. Through interviews with U.S.-based organizations from a variety of sectors, researchers are identifying tools, practices, and resources that help those organizations make informed decisions that protect their information and assets. In this podcast, Jared Ettinger describes preliminary findings from the interviews including best practices in cyber intelligence.
