What is Strategic Threat Intelligence?

Strategic threat intelligence is data that helps you protect your organisation from cyber-attacks. Data is gathered, processed, and analysed to provide you with actionable information that can enhance your security posture.

Our service focusses on the digital footprints of your organisation’s personnel. Senior personnel have elevated permissions and access to highly privileged information. If sensitive or controversial information were to be discovered, an attack could be launched on your organisation.

Rootshell Security’s Strategic Intelligence Investigations analyse digital footprints for any information that could be exploited by threat actors. We provide the strategic threat intelligence you need to safeguard your organisation.

How is strategic cyber threat intelligence carried out?

Your Strategic Threat Intelligence Investigation is carried out in the following process.

  1. Define scope and objectives: Our experienced team of investigators will work closely with you to define the scope and goals of your strategic cyber intelligence investigation. We can conduct investigations on board (c-level) personnel, senior personnel, or any other person of special interest or position.
  2. Intelligence-driven data collection: Using cutting-edge open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools and techniques, we gather strategic cyber intelligence from the surface, deep, and dark web. This could include financial background information, personal web habits, social media activity, personal views, affiliations, leaked passwords, and a number of other data sources.
  3. Thorough processing and analysis: Once we have carried out a comprehensive strategic threat intelligence investigation, we analyse the data for possible threats and risks, including susceptibility to blackmail, the potential for reputational damage, and indicators of potential compromise (IOCs)
  4. Clear reporting: Our team of analysts will provide you with a report detailing our findings. We give you context and highlight how the data could be used by threat actors to compromise your organisation.
