Companies that do business on the internet or use network connections in any way, shape, or form are vulnerable to cyberattack. And let’s face it, that includes pretty much everyone these days. According to the 1H 2021 NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence Report, there were nearly 5.4 million distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks in the first half of 2021. But although the threat landscape is often discussed in terms of attack numbers, experts in threat intelligence tend to think in terms of people: the adversaries behind the attacks. During a recent NETSCOUT OnGuard webinar, a panel of security researchers from NETSCOUT’s threat intelligence team discussed the vital role threat intelligence plays in a modern cybersecurity strategy.
