TURN CYBER THREAT DATA INTO INTELLIGENCE YOU CAN USE

As overwhelming volumes of raw cyber event data are ingested into the SurfWatch data warehouse, they are aggregated and standardized into the CyberFact information model, which leverages a simple ATEP structure - Actor, Target, Effect, and Practice. Now security and IT professionals, executives and analysts can understand risks facing their organization and make more strategic and informed cybersecurity decisions.

KNOW WHAT CYBER ACTIVITY IS OCCURRING AND ITS IMPACT ON YOUR BUSINESS THROUGH CYBERFACT THREAT CATEGORIES

As part of the ATEP information model, SurfWatch Labs creates high-level threat categories for tags within a piece of information (i.e. a document). Associated with every CyberFact are Industry Target Tags, which describe the business or organization most impacted by the event. Below is the listing of threat categories for Actor, Target, Effect and Practice, along with definitions and real-world examples.

CyberFact
