Leverage the information in MISP to make threat landscape report
Most often questions asked to generate a threat landscape report
MISP can be a great source of information for generating a threat landscape report. Quite frequently, we get asked by various stakeholders, what exactly can be used as the basis of how to scope the kinds of information that are required or needed, for generating such a report.
- What are the most common vulnerabilities?
- What are the most common threats?
- What are the most common techniques used by adversaries?
- What are the priorities or remediation to limit specific risks?
- What are the most common countries targeted?
- What are the most common malware families?
MISP itself can be also a source of interesting insights such as
- Who are the most active organisations?
- How active is a given sharing community?
- What are the capabilities of an organisation?
MISP is not replacing analysts when it comes to producing a report, but it offers an easy way to create a threat intelligence report, reducing the tedious and repetitive tasks.
