An Introduction to Wapack Labs

Wapack Lab (WL) is a privately held USA owned and based cyber threat intelligence firm that delivers proprietary intelligence data, anaysis and in-depth strategic reporting. WL delivers insightful, actionable intelligence in formats best suited to your strategic, operational, and tactical needs.

Founded in 2011 by the creator of the first successful DoD public-private cyber intelligence partnership and the developer of the world’s first enterprise payment server, WL focuses on identifying cyber threat actors, incidents, and trends; documenting tactics, techniques, and procedures; and putting that information into the proper context for both executive decision-makers and front-line defenders.

Wapack Labs follows a warning problem methodology; an approach used in the defense and intelligence communities to monitor and report on threats from both nation-states and non-state actors. Warning problems can run the gamut from phishing to DDoS to physical attack. Anything that you may consider a threat to your enterprise. WL’s analysts incorporate data and factors beyond the technical to include geographic, political, and economic trends and developments. WL follows this approach because “cyber” is only one aspect of the myriad threats facing your enterprise.

WL is a cyber threat analysis firm. The analysts on the hunt team, Team Jaeger are investigating emerging threats from WL’s sources. The technical intelligence team mines WL’s proprietary collections, underground forums, and the dark web. The fusion team produces all-source finished intelligence assessments. WL’s philosophy is that machines produce data and humans produce intelligence. WL leverages automation, but every report on is reviewed by a subject matter expert and a veteran intelligence officer. The team approach offers clients the best view on cyber threat activities. The final product can be in form of reports, feeds delivered via API and services such as RedXray and the Cyber Threat Analysis Center (CTAC), both of which were developed and owned by WL.

WL’s product/service offerings are available at many price points to meet the needs of Enterprise sized companies and the 95% of USA companies that have 25-200 employees. In addition to WL’s paid services, WL offers no charge services, such as, WL’s no charge cyber threat portal and a malware analysis application for free. WL feels that all companies, no matter their size or budget need cyber threat help and this is part of WL’s mission.
