Banks, retailers, and healthcare institutions have been some of the biggest targets for hackers for years. With large networks, hackers can breach platforms and access financial institutions’ data, retailers’ customer payment information, and patient files. With this looming threat continually growing in complexity, cybersecurity organizations need to share threat information to develop a roadmap to defeat malicious actors.
This is best done through Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), where cybersecurity professionals can anonymously share these details about threat vectors for others to be on the prowl for. So why are organizations so hesitant to do so?
Neal Dennis, Threat Intelligence Specialist at Cyware, discusses why it’s imperative for the cybersecurity industry to share threat information (hackers do it, so shouldn’t we?) and how this could help prevent the next Capital One Marriott breach. He also debunks the misconceptions of threat sharing and ISACs that many organizations may have.
