AI In The Intelligence Cycle – A Role To Play In ‘Collection’ and ‘Analysis’ Stage?

The use of Artificial Intelligence within the role of a CTI analyst has long been in question.

At the end of September, our Head of Cyber Threat Intelligence Stewart K.

If you need to think about the deployment of AI within your security organisation, you can book a call with Stewart directly. 

Disinformation: Measuring The Bullsh*t-To-Truth Ratio

Despite widespread acknowledgment that disinformation is a major threat, we lack the frameworks and governance to adequately address it. Established, structured analytical frameworks would offer far more value to understand the threat in depth and take appropriate actions.
