Zero-day exploits such as last week’s Petya can be a nightmare of damage to a company’s information, systems and reputation. One of the more practical solutions for such an attack is for companies to band together and share information that could bolster defences or prevent the next outbreak. There are traditional channels for doing this like ISACs, other sharing groups and security products, but these methods still lack the immediacy that is vital to managing attacks of such magnitude.
To help with this issue, the Anomali Forum has a chat feature that enables users within organizations and Trusted Circles to talk with one another in an immediate and secure fashion. Although simple in principle, the Forum’s chat has the potential to transform a place for discussion into a war room for cyber battles such as Petya and WanaCry.
Even when all is quiet on the cyber front, the Anomali Forum provides customers a place to discuss security topics, ask questions and provide answers. Previous topics have covered virtually anything - trends, threat intelligence, zero-day vulnerabilities and threat investigation best practices. Users can reply, bookmark, post, flag, like and share topics and earn badges for participation.
The Anomali Forum is also a great way for users to give feedback to us at Anomali. Any user can create a feature request and subsequent poll that other users can then vote on.
