Security Now
Security is top-of-mind everywhere, especially right here where Juniper experts share their thoughts on the latest security breakthroughs and product advancements

The emergence of the cyber threat phenomenon is forcing organizations to change how they think about security in many ways. One of these changes refers to organizations’ policy on sharing cyber related information with outside parties, while creating a collaborative effort to fight the cyber war. Such sharing, represents a shift in the legacy information technology paradigm of security silos, and creates a complex, multifaceted challenge to technology, law, organizational culture, privacy and even politics.

 

Sharing organizational cyber information is the communication of information regarding an organization’s security to an external party that results in gain for the sharing and receiving party alike. The challenges posed by innovative attack methods, such as the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), reduce the effectiveness of traditional security mechanisms. To a certain extent, an inter-organizational cyber information sharing infrastructure can help the identification of an attack or attacker in a given organization, and once mitigated the details of the attack and/or the inoculation can be distributed to other organizations to help prevent similar attacks.

There is a lot of focus these days in the US Congress and in the Administration on the topic of cyber information sharing. While it is important to elevate the dialogue about cybersecurity preparedness, protection, and resilience to a sustained national level, we must also not fall into the trap of thinking that the work is done by simply improving the exchange of cyber threat and vulnerability information.
