Intelligence sharing communities are recognized as one of the best defenses against cyber threats and attacks. And organizations are no longer alone in this hostile environment – members are ‘trust-sourcing’ threat indicators for analysts to research, scrub and anonymize, yielding actionable intelligence for dissemination in real and near-real time. Energy Analytic Security Exchange (EASE) provides intelligence and information sharing services to utilities companies and organizations related to the electric grid.
Global Resilience Federation supports and connects intelligence sharing communities. GRF is a not-for-profit intelligence provider and hub for cyber and physical threat sharing between ISACs, ISAOs and CERTs from many different sectors and regions around the world. Many industries have their own threat sharing organization, but threat actors no longer target sectors one at a time. Malicious campaigns often infiltrate many industries at once, or use one to backdoor into another. GRF creates new sharing communities, and connects existing industries to broaden their security footprint and provide for the common defense.
