The Current Challenge
Ever since the exposure of APT1 by Mandiant in 2004, companies and organizations have started to realize the importance of having cyber threat intelligence services to enhance the maturity of their cybersecurity framework. Since then, many companies have started to offer solutions and products within this area covering various threat actors and their activities worldwide providing organizations the visibility they need to ensure they have the adequate protection against these threats.
After attending several conferences and intelligence sharing sessions, a number of representatives from mature organizations in various critical information infrastructure sectors observed a lack of coverage on the Asia-Pacific region especially in South East Asia. While these organizations subscribed to premium threat intelligence vendors, the coverage of cyber threat activities are mainly on Russia, Iran, North Korea, China and India.
This lack of coverage on Asia-Pacific has inspired the establishment of GreyInt to complement existing solutions with better visibility on this region especially in the field of hacktivism and cybercriminal activities.
