From ‘Fog of War’ to Reducing Noise in Daily Operations (Cyber Intelligence)
Date & Time
Tuesday, March 10, 2020, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Graham Westbrook Wilson Bautista, Jr

The fog of war is an old metaphor to describe uncertainty and fatigue during wartime. New research suggests that noise is a more accurate metaphor to describe the deafening uncertainty and alert fatigue we experience in daily operations. Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is no exception. Our goal is to reduce uncertainty for decision-makers (human and machine) in combating cyber threats. But what if, before all else, that decision-maker is you?

 We need to rethink what "intelligence" really means and how it is applied across our organizations. This session will zoom out from the CTI frontlines to help analysts and leaders alike understand the relationship between mind and machine, the necessity of separating noise from signal and the tools for acting with confidence. We will reimagine how we can develop Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIRs) to address business risk, explore a new framework for reducing decision fatigue, and understand how to use principles of intelligence analysis to achieve our mission. From hardware to end user, this is one discussion you don’t want to miss.
