Lessen your workload: Generate cyber threat intelligence reports in minutes, not hours

Cybersecurity professionals are under pressure to handle increasing workloads despite limited budgets, inadequate staffing, and growing attack surfaces. Surveys show a majority find their jobs more difficult than in previous years and a significant number report that they’re very likely to leave their current cybersecurity job.[1]

Adding to their stress are requests for cyber threat intelligence reports from board directors, senior executives, and other stakeholders in response to cybersecurity news reports. After all, if major media outlets are sounding the alarm about a new, pervasive malware on the loose, the top people will want to know what their cybersecurity team is doing about it.

The problem is that these reports take hours to produce. Those who produce them need to check a variety of sources, gathering open-source information and other useful data, and then write up their findings. In one survey, 60% of the respondents said they spend 40% of their time responding to cybersecurity news reports – time that they can’t spare. The issue of report generation is particularly important to Managed Services Security Providers (MSSPs) because they often have to summarize findings and communicate them to multiple clients at the same time. 

But relief is in sight. Cybersixgill now enables security teams and MSSPs to create cyber threat intelligence reports in a few minutes. The new IQ Report Generator taps into the power of Cybersixgill IQ, the company’s generative AI offering. 

A threat intelligence process that would normally be performed manually, culling from disparate intelligence sources and navigating varying platforms, is executed with the dazzling speed we’ve come to associate with generative AI tools. That information is then organized and translated into a report suitable for review by non-technical readers, such as board members and C-level executives. Beyond assessing the situation, IQ Report Generator can provide insights and recommendations for next steps. The report generator is not just for non-technical reports; it can produce reports that are more in-depth and technical as well.

The feature offers a number of parameters that users can select, such as topic, audience, format, and timeframe, to create a detailed report instantaneously. Besides reports to executives, the IQ Report Generator can produce a wide variety of cyber threat intelligence reports, including:

  • Incident response reports – including indicators of compromise, attack timelines, affected systems, and recommended actions

  • Threat intelligence briefings – assessing key threat trends, emerging threats, and their potential impact on the organization

  • Vendor risk reports – highlighting the risks from third-party vendors and informing decision-making

  • Post-incident reports – summarizing lessons learned, recommendations to improve, and strategies to prevent future incidents

  • Risk-assessment reports – assessing overall cybersecurity risk, potential impact, and mitigation strategies

By handing over report-creation responsibilities to Cybersixgill’s IQ Report Generator, security teams can concentrate on focusing their efforts on thwarting cyberattacks. MSSPs can communicate risk and ROI to their customers with ease and efficiency, particularly when they need to share multiple custom reports tailored to each client organization.
