About TI (Threat Intelligence)

Already since the creation of Fox-IT in 1999 investigating the threat landscape and the relevant actors has been a strong focus for us. Understanding their motivation, identifying their targets and way of working has always been the key differentiator in our work, long before threat intelligence became a buzzword.

About the TI-Lab

The Lab is an infrastructure with both off-the-shelf and custom made components. It is built to collect, analyse and store data on the many threats we analyse every single day.

The Lab takes in data in various feeds & formats and analyses, stores and correlates artefacts. This allows the threat analysts to connect the dots by tracking relevant threats and tying these to observations that have been made elsewhere in space or time, so that we can keep ahead of the adversaries who are always trying to outwit us.

  • Help with improving our development process.
