Flashpoint Threat Intelligence

Flashpoint refers to the temperature at which liquid produces sufficient vapor that it ignites when exposed to flame, or ignition source. Testing to ascertain this property involves heating the liquid continuously while applying an ignition source at set intervals.

John Constantine reads Barry’s thoughts and advises him to trigger a Flashpoint to alter time travel history, prompting Barry reluctantly agrees but later finds that everything has shifted drastically in an unexpected direction.

Threat Intelligence

As threats evolve, cybersecurity professionals rely on threat intelligence to anticipate and prevent vulnerabilities before they are exploited by attackers. Companies such as Flashpoint have established themselves in this market by providing comprehensive threat intelligence capabilities across multiple domains, including cyber threats and vulnerabilities, physical security risks and terrorist activities.

Security threat intelligence capabilities from the company provide visibility into all forms of adversary activity, from malicious IPs, IoCs and TTPs to vulnerabilities and security team efficiency. With this intelligence in hand, vulnerabilities are prioritized for remediation; sophisticated attacks detected more efficiently; and security teams more effective.

Flashpoint collects 2-10 Terabytes of new cyber threats and vulnerabilities data monthly, such as breaches, compromised servers lists, exploitable software vulnerabilities tips and conversations on threat actor forums. Flashpoint then analyzes this data in order to create reports and dashboards for customers – however this process requires significant technical expertise and time commitment.

Flashpoint recently implemented Looker, Google’s business intelligence and analytics platform, in order to enhance its threat intelligence delivery process and more quickly provide customized, scalable and straightforward security intelligence to its customers.

Customers of the company’s vulnerability management tools can take immediate steps to address vulnerabilities and defend against attacks, as they provide threat intelligence from both the deep and dark web that helps identify, prioritize and remediate critical vulnerabilities by combining insights from publicly available CVEs with information sourced from illicit online communities and threat actor communications, according to the company.

Flashpoint provides organizations with threat intelligence from both the dark and deep web in addition to vulnerability management for physical security workflows. This intelligence helps organizations safeguard people, assets and infrastructure against physical threats by providing tools to monitor key locations/assets/events/incidents for alerts.

Security and risk intelligence capabilities from our company combine open-source threat intelligence collections, analysis expertise, investigative tools, and AI enrichments with mission-driven teams in defense, law enforcement/public safety/homeland security teams as well as state/local government and federal civilian agencies to inform, operate, attack defend or influence their work processes.

Risk Mitigation

Flashpoint’s business risk intelligence (BRI) capabilities enable MSSP partners to securely track adversaries across online communities, open web sources and dark web sources; providing context around threat information which enables proactive mitigation strategies. This functionality provides an essential addition to core services offered by MSSPs such as network/log monitoring, vulnerability management and threat hunting services.

Flash point refers to the lowest temperature at which liquid can vaporize and ignite when exposed to external sources of heat, or “flashed off” by airflow. It is also the point at which air can blow the liquid away or cause it to “flash off”.

Determining the flashpoint of any substance can be accomplished using several techniques. A closed-cup test, in which samples of material are used to establish their flash point and measured with a temperature recorder/thermocouple, is by far the most popular method used for this task. One common use for flash point testing is classifying liquids according to DOT regulations; other regulatory bodies may use different systems but in general DOT defines class II liquids as having flash points up to 141deg F while combustible ones must have minimum flash points of 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

While there are various methods and techniques for establishing the flash point of a product, the primary goal should be ensuring its safe handling and storage. As risks associated with hazardous materials handling can be significant, especially those that contain extremely low flash points; it is therefore vital that any method chosen meets all regulatory requirements within your specific jurisdiction.

SiliconAngle reports that Ignite, launched at RSA 2023 conference, provides teams with team-tailored intelligence from deep and dark web sources as well as open sources and surface web sources in order to better understand adversaries and mitigate threats more quickly and effectively. It combines raw and finished intelligence within its user-friendly interface and also supports universal search capabilities and optical character recognition capabilities as well as rules-based alerting with news-style intelligence reports and personalized dashboards.

Data Management

Flashpoint provides business risk intelligence (BRI), providing organizations with a strategic advantage against potential threats and adversaries. Utilizing its technology and data collections with human analysts to enhance cybersecurity posture, detect insider threats/fraud, address third-party risk and support M&A due diligence efforts is just some of its capabilities.

Flashpoint offers services beyond threat detection that extend beyond core threat detection capabilities, including vulnerability management and threat hunting. Vulnerability management includes access to malware IP addresses and domains, high-signal technical indicators of compromise, as well as detailed descriptions of vulnerabilities discovered by Flashpoint’s teams. Threat hunting services enable organizations to detect and investigate activity from specific threat actors across online communities as well as open and dark web sources.

Flashpoint BRI provides customers with integration capabilities that make Flashpoint BRI easily integrated into existing security infrastructure and operational workflows, including SIEM/ORCC platforms and firewalls. These include:

Flashpoint’s hallmark feature is its ability to provide context from multiple sources, helping users make sense of and take action on information they are analyzing and taking in an efficient manner. This includes its vetted and contextualized alerting which can help organizations avoid “alert fatigue”. In addition, users have access to Flashpoint’s world-class collections which return search results within seconds – shortening analysis time significantly.

Flashpoint offers numerous collaborative tools that enable teams to work more closely together and enhance their collective defenses against cyber and physical threats. One such collaborative platform, FP Collab, allows customers to share vetted alerts as well as intelligence reports written by its team of subject matter experts; an additional community of over 1,000 members also shares threat intelligence through an in-platform discussion forum intended to build stronger defenses against malicious activity.

Trade associations often used multiple systems that handled different aspects of their business independently. This often resulted in information being duplicative or even lost due to manual, multistep workflows or incompatibilities between tools – something the Ignite experience addresses by creating workflows tailored for practitioners that enable faster action on mission-critical intelligence than ever before.

Analytics

Flashpoint helps teams strengthen cybersecurity, combat fraud, detect insider threats, enhance corporate and physical security and mitigate third-party risk. Boasting new dashboards and analytics as well as expanded datasets, chat services and communities as well as industry alerting that simplifies consumption and automation of intelligence gathered through flashpoint’s Business Risk Intelligence (BRI) approach, Flashpoint helps customers improve security across their organisation.

FlashPoint Analytics includes a dashboard that shows the current state of ransomware attacks worldwide and an interactive map with locations of active threat actors, along with an attack hotspot map illustrating where attacks have increased significantly. This data can help companies prioritize security response efforts and identify any regions where additional resources might need to be deployed.

Looker, a data visualization platform that has dramatically expedited Flashpoint engineers’ and analysts’ delivery of insights to customers’ cyber threat intelligence (CTI) teams, is powering their dashboards. In the past, this would take days or weeks of manual effort; now they can create custom reports and dashboards 98% more efficiently with Looker.

Flashpoint’s CTI team recently utilized Looker to quickly build a dashboard of global ransomware activity, providing insight into both frequency and severity. Engineers of Flashpoint used Looker as an efficient means of creating this dashboard in just hours – saving both time and effort for creating it themselves.

Risk Intelligence Observables is another dashboard, offering a high-fidelity feed of cyber observables gathered and analysed by company experts, used to develop tailored threat intelligence that informs an organization’s security operations allowing it to quickly assess risk posture while responding swiftly and accurately to any potential threats.

Other analytics capabilities include the tagging and content classification that maximize intelligence reporting. This makes it simple for users to investigate intelligence reports directly. In addition, flashpoint API allows customers to integrate with their own technology partner integrations or systems while receiving near real-time access to company datasets – this feature allows customers to leverage threat intelligence with internal systems and workflows more effectively.
