- Threat Levels can be understood from the simple example of any video game. Let’s take the example of the popular video game “Super Mario”.
- As Mario moves from one level to another, he faces increased difficulties and obstructions (bad actors) in his journey to meet the princess (goal).
- Similarly, a shift from a threat level to another (higher-up) would indicate an increased level of malicious activity. Likewise, a shift in the reverse order would indicate a decrease in the level of threat activity.
- Enterprises can warn their security teams and vendors with whom they share information about the ongoing level of malicious activity.
- ISACs/ISAOs can warn their members against sector-wide threat activity.
- MSSPs can warn their clients against the ongoing threat activity that poses risk to all of them.
- CERTs can warn federal, state, and local constituents against the ongoing threat activity at the respective scale.
