We spent forty years defending ourselves as individuals. Trying to outsmart cybercriminals, outpower them, and when all our efforts failed, only then we considered banding together with our peers to outnumber them.
Cybercriminals don’t reinvent themselves each time. Their resources are limited, and they have a limited budget. Therefore they use playbooks to attack many people. Meaning most of the attacks are known to people and not innovative. Yet, all we hear about is one breach after another despite hundreds of millions of dollars being thrown into the industry.
So if we know that teaming up and sharing information is the key, why aren’t security vendors doing it? It’s simple. Vendors don’t want to give it to you; they want to sell it to you.
Cyber Threat Intelligence: A better way to fight cybercrime
As the internet continues to expand and connect more people and devices than ever before, the need for effective cyber threat intelligence sharing has never been greater. In today’s interconnected world, a threat to one organization can quickly become a threat to many others, making it essential for businesses and other organizations to share information and work together to stay safe online.
