Campaign Intelligence

The Campaign Intelligence app collects and organizes information about active threat campaigns.

Campaign Intelligence is an always up-to-date information resource for active campaigns, security threats, and software vulnerabilities, curated by Trend Micro threat experts. The Intelligence Data section pulls the latest data about a selected threat from Trend Micro and third-party sources. The Impact Scope section highlights evidence of threats found in your environment.

Note:
  • A campaign is a set of malicious activities carried out by a threat actor to target an organization, region, or industry. Campaigns typically use specific techniques (TTPs) and can be identified by threat types such as intrusion sets, ransomware, APT attacks, or software vulnerabilities.

The following table describes the sections of the Campaign Intelligence app.

The top section contains a summary and description of the selected threat or vulnerability.

Tip:

Because security threats are often named by security vendors with each vendor applying a different name, security threats often have numerous names. You can find a list of alternative names in next to AKA.
