The vulnerability and threat perspectives help you identify potential cybersecurity risks. The priorities approach takes it one step further. This involves looking at the threat landscape and asking yourself, What applies to my organization and my environment?
“You have thousands and thousands of vulnerabilities, and yet most of those things are probably of no relevance to you,” says Terumi.
Threat management software like Amazon GuardDuty is more of a service than a tool, but it examines the threat landscape and your own environment. If it sees any bad behaviors in the outside world present in your environment, it will highlight them for you.
“It’s not going to stop it,” Terumi explains. “But it will tell you, ‘Hey, maybe you should be careful here because we see something happening in your environment that you should pay attention to.’”
