Vigilant threat studies
Insights for better threat management and response
Threat Studies are detailed reports reflecting research on ongoing threats or emerging threat trends, typically focused on specific threat actors or technical issues that are persistent over time. These studies contain detailed information on adversary tools, techniques and practices (TTPs) and associated indicators of compromise (IoCs). The threats identified for study are chosen based on their relevance and impact to our clients, and to provide coverage of threat areas that are not currently being reported by other contributors in the broader threat research community.
