Considering the ever changing threat landscape, correlating the information across each technological defenses is of paramount importance. With ever demanding business needs to have an eagle view of information security, it's a challenge to correlate TB's of data to an actionable threat intelligence. If the intelligence isn't tied to a business problem, chances are the service is a waste of money. The organization implemented an end-to-end threat intelligence segregated into 4 layers - End-Point, Network, Server and DMZ. At each layer, primary and secondary controls were placed for active defense and response. In case of any threats prevented or detected at any of the layers, the other layers would be updated with relevant IOC's and suspicious object details would be shared across each layer. This resulted in proper correlation among the layers and an improved cybersecurity posture
