Event description

Description

Speaker: Stewart K. Bertram (Director of Strategic Intelligence, Digital Shadows)

Chair: Lucas Kello (University of Oxford)


The last decade has seen the world of cyber security change beyond all recognition, from an adjunct consideration within the IT department to a global level security concern. Wikileaks, Stuxnet, Sony, APT1, and Notpetya are just some of the keywords associated with incidents that have heralded the increased securitization around the issue of 'cyber' and how it has become a critical issue for many invested in security. Within this context, actors such as governments have obviously had to reconsider their attitude towards cyber security. However, how has the role of the cyber threat intelligence (CTI) provider changed over the last decade?

As the context of CTI changes, and security services become politicized by implication, so the role of a CTI provider changes - from IT professional to potential cyber mercenary. This talk considers how the context of cyber security has changed and how this may affect CTI providers over the next decade.
