As a subset of cyber security, cyber intelligence, also called: cyber threat intelligence is about information acquisition for tracking, analyzing, and countering of cyber, digital, or information security threats. Cyber intelligence serves as the backbone for integrated security frameworks where the accuracy and credibility of collected information about possible threats can significantly impact the ability to counter or respond to such threats, Fig. 5.1.
