Graham Cluley Security News is sponsored this week by the folks at Recorded Future. Thanks to the great team there for their support!

There has never been a better time than 2020 to be a cybercriminal. From extortion ransomware to cyberespionage campaigns, malicious hackers are capitalizing on uncertainty, causing chaos, and cashing in.

The best defence is to be focused on proactively disrupting attackers’ activities.

Security intelligence is an outcomes-centric approach to reducing risk. It fuses internal and external threat, security, and business insights across an entire organization — and is the most powerful weapon your business has against malicious hackers.

Recorded Future gives your organization the power to reveal unknown threats before they impact your business, and help your teams respond to alerts ten times faster

It does this by automatically collecting and analyzing intelligence from technical, open web, and dark web sources.

The great news is that Recorded Future is offering readers of two fantastic offers – and they are both free!
