Cyber intelligence is the missing link between your cyber defense operation teams, threat intelligence, and IT operations to provide your organization with a full spectrum of defensive capabilities. This book kicks off with the need for cyber intelligence and why it is required in terms of a defensive framework.

Moving forward, the book provides a practical explanation of the F3EAD protocol with the help of examples. Furthermore, we learn how to go about threat models and intelligence products/frameworks and apply them to real-life scenarios. Based on the discussion with the prospective author I would also love to explore the induction of a tool to enhance the marketing feature and functionality of the book.

By the end of this book, you will be able to boot up an intelligence program in your organization based on the operation and tactical/strategic spheres of Cyber defense intelligence.
