Cyber Threat Information Sharing: An Industry Movement
Information sharing can be the industry movement that will cause the most pain to cyber adversaries in the coming years by driving the costs of successful cyber-attacks up exponentially. If we aspire to put an end to the breaches we read about in the headlines almost daily, cyber threat information sharing within and across industries must be embraced by everyone. Will technology alone solve this? No. It will require the right mix of security technologies together with processes to protect privacy and people to be critical, to protecting and defending networks.
