Information Sharing Communities: Your Best Source of Cyber Threat Intelligence
Communities emerged from the understanding that each industry or sector faces its own set of unique cyber threats. Health care has patient records to protect. Energy has industrial control systems to defend.
Information Sharing and Analysis Communities (ISACs) and Organizations (ISAOs) are created with the goal of sharing this valuable industry-specific cyber threat intel, and combine analyst efforts throughout the industry to gain a cumulative, effective defense against attack for ALL THE MEMBERS of the community. It’s simply more relevant than any other source you could use, regardless of the volume of amassed threat intelligence (think “random honeypot”).
While sharing communities are undeniably the best source of cyber intelligence for ANY business, investing in everything needed for your business to use it efficiently is cost-prohibitive for all but the largest corporations and critical infrastructure, leading smaller businesses to abandon Sharing Community intel for a less-effective, but more reasonably priced option.
