Threat Intelligence Sharing Challenges: Understand Context of Cyber Events (HelpNetSecurity)


A new McAfee report details the challenges facing threat intelligence sharing efforts. The growing complexity of the technology environment is a very important driver for sharing threat intelligence.

Applications, devices, and clouds have enabled anytime, anywhere, anything access demands, making it difficult to distinguish between legitimate and suspicious traffic.

“The security industry faces critical challenges in our efforts to share threat intelligence between entities, among vendor solutions, and even within vendor portfolios,” said Vincent Weafer, Vice President of McAfee Labs. “Working together is power. Addressing these challenges will determine the effectiveness of cybersecurity teams to automate detection and orchestrate responses, and ultimately tip the cybersecurity balance in favor of defenders.”
