Arlington, VA – December 15, 2015 – ThreatConnect® Inc., creator of the most widely adopted Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), today announced a partnership with the NorSec Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO). The partnership aims to strengthen the cybersecurity posture of NorSec’s public and private sector members across the country.”By leveraging ThreatConnect’s ISAO Edition, NorSec can identify active threats presented through phishing campaigns, network malfeasance and new attack patterns, and push intelligence to the NorSec ISAO Community members in real-time,” explains NorSec’s Executive Director Ron Fresquez. Matthew J. Harmon, NorSec’s Board Chair and Founder adds, “Cyber adversaries move with speed and stealth. It is our belief that all types of organizations, including those beyond traditional critical infrastructure sectors, need to be able to share and respond to cyber risk in as close to real-time as possible. The ThreatConnect platform makes this possible.”The ISAO model, which emerged out of the Executive Order – Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing, aims to bind together organizations “on the basis of sector, sub-sector, region, or any other affinity” for the purposes of enhanced cyber situational awareness. While certification guidelines are being established for ISAOs, early adopters and thought leaders, like ThreatConnect and NorSec ISAO, are boldly pushing ahead.
“ThreatConnect is uniquely positioned to support the ISAO model – including those ISAOs forming around public and private sector collaboration,” said Christy Coffey, business development director for ThreatConnect. “We are excited to be partnering with NorSec and implementing Community-powered threat intelligence to protect their resource rich member-base across the state of Minnesota.”
