Threat sharing networks have been around for a long time, however they have typically been "invitation-only", available to only large companies, or those within a particular industry. The AlienVault Open Threat Exchange is different. It is one of the first (and most diverse) threat sharing networks, open to any and all who wish to join. And, free services like new ThreatFinder help make the threat data in OTX available and actionable by all. Join AlienVault VP of Product Strategy, Russ Spitler, and Systems Engineer, Tom D'Aquino for a practical session covering how to use OTX to improve network security.
Russ & Tom will cover:
How threat intelligence is gathered and vetted in the Open Threat Exchange
How to use the threat data provided by OTX free services
Examples of the types of threats you can identify with OTX
Best practices to investigate and mitigate threats, including a quick tour of AlienVault USM
