All-Source Analysis

All-Source Analysis is the analysis of threat information from multiple sources, disciplines, and agencies across the Intelligence Community. Analysts use this strategy to synthesize and group intelligence data gathered to create context and potential narratives (meaning). The analysis assists in drawing conclusions concerning the threats infiltrating networks and endpoints. Once data is synthesized, the data is generally used to support operations and decision-making around containment, eradication, and attributions.

What does this mean for an SMB?

All-source analysis is a great way to examine your data if you have access to intelligence community sources. It’s even better when you employee people or a team to analyze the data specifically for your organization. However, most SMBs do not have access to such sources of information nor can they afford to hire business intelligence analysts.  All source analysis is typically used by defense contractors working closely with government entities or vice versa.
SMBs can join industry cybersecurity groups like the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) or Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) in which some government entities share their intelligence gathering information on trends and emerging threats. Joining such groups is attainable for most SMBs but is best performed by someone like a vCISO or cybersecurity professional.
