What is Cyber Fusion?

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Cyber Fusion is a next-generation approach to cybersecurity that unifies all security functions such as threat intelligence, security automation, threat response, security orchestration, incident response, and others into a single connected unit with the capability to coalesce all comprising units for detecting, managing and responding to threats in an integrated and collaborative manner.

What is Cyber Threat Intelligence?

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Threat intelligence is evidence-based information or knowledge of the capabilities, techniques, infrastructure, motives, goals, and resources of an existing or emerging threat. This intelligence provides context to better understand and identify adversaries, and as Gartner’s definition of threat intelligence states, this information “can be used to inform decisions regarding the subject's response to that menace or hazard”. Simply put, threat intelligence is the knowledge that allows you to prevent, identify, and mitigate cyberattacks.

What is Incident Response?

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Incident response is a security function that involves handling and responding to cyberattacks. These cyberattacks on organizations can have damaging impacts ranging from intellectual property and sensitive data theft to a considerable impact on their operations and brand. The objective of cyber incident response is to mitigate the impact of cyberattacks and, if possible, proactively undertake actions to remove any scope for a successful attack.

What is Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR)?

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

SOAR stands for Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response. But what is SOAR? Gartner defines Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) as “technologies that enable organizations to collect inputs monitored by the security operations team SOAR tools allow an organization to define incident analysis and response procedures in a digital workflow format.” In other words, SOAR refers to a security technology that allows automated accumulation and flow of security threat data between disparate security technologies (such as SIEM, threat intelligence platform, firewall, incident response platform, etc.) deployed on different environments (cloud and on-premise) and facilitates automated responses to security threats. The objective of SOAR is to streamline security operations.
