It is especially critical as part of ZT Capability 7.5 - Threat Intelligence Integration. From the Zero Trust Capability Roadmap: this capability requires integration of "threat intelligence information and integrate threat intelligence information and streams about identities, motivations, streams about identities, motivations, characteristics, and tactics, techniques and characteristics, and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs)."
