Deloitte Cyber Risk Services expands Threat Management Services with ThreatConnect platform
NEW YORK, July 28, 2016—As organizations recognize the need and importance of managing cyber threats, they need better situational awareness of their threat landscapes and the overall attack surface. They also need to know how to derive “intelligence” from their myriad of data sources. In order to help organizations meet these challenges head on, Deloitte Advisory Cyber Risk Services announces further expansion of its Vigilant Managed Services through an alliance with ThreatConnectTM to integrate the leading threat intelligence platform (TIP) into Deloitte Advisory’s Threat Intelligence and Analytics Services.
“We’re dedicated to providing a portfolio of tightly integrated cyber operations services that are focused on organization-specific threats so each can get in front of its own cyber risk and can innovate with confidence,” said Adnan Amjad, Cyber Threat Risk Management practice leader for Deloitte Advisory Cyber Risk Services and partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP. “By teaming with ThreatConnect, we can further enable organizations to enhance the value of their security technology investments, combat the fragmentation of their security organizations, and enhance their infrastructure with relevant threat intelligence across a scalable, integrated platform.”

TIP keeps up with the automated parts of the cybersecurity process to establish a faster, more streamlined process. It also automatically ingests all of the threat data, normalizes it and enriches it with data from partners and intelligence services.

- Pivoting easily from one data point to another, uncovering patterns, and gaining a full picture of cyber adversaries’ TTPs
- Managing a faster, more agile team by enabling better utilization of existing tools and processes
- Contributing to and drawing from trusted communities to build a shared knowledge resource

Executives and directors expect their cybersecurity operations to be adapted to the specific risks that arise from their business strategies, such as digital or Internet of Things (IoT) innovations, or business events such as M&A. Having a threat intelligence platform is a great start, but an organization also needs to understand how to build and utilize the people,
Amjad adds, “We’ve invested heavily in our cyber risk portfolio. It is designed to streamline gap and benefit analysis, threat and risk detection and roadmap development. It also is aligned with the business case for cyber risk investment that resonates with C-suites and boards.”
