You can be a security intelligence expert, with these free tools from Recorded Future

Many thanks to the great folks at Recorded Future, who have sponsored my writing for the past week.

If 2020 taught the security industry anything, it is this: There has never been a better time to be a cybercriminal. From extortion ransomware to cyberespionage campaigns, adversaries are capitalizing on uncertainty, causing chaos, and cashing in.

The only defenders who will win are the ones 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 it is the most powerful weapon defenders have against threat actors.

Recorded Future empowers your organization, revealing unknown threats before they impact your business, and helping your teams respond to alerts 10 times faster. How does it do this? By automatically collecting and analyzing intelligence from technical, open web, and dark web sources.

Recorded Future is offering readers of this website two fantastic offers – and they’re both free!
