ThreatConnect Community Facilitates Public-Private Partnership for
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Squared Inc. announced today that ThreatConnect™,
the leading threat intelligence platform, has launched a European
Community of Interest. The private industry community will bridge
together public organizations and private corporations across Europe to
share threat intelligence data and collaborate within a secure
This new private
community includes organizations from Aerospace, Defense,
Government, Banking and Finance, Manufacturing, Oil and Natural Gas,
Medical/Pharmaceutical, Telecommunications, and
Energy/Utility/Transportation industries across Europe. Vetted members
can immediately begin working with others to aggregate knowledge for a
more complete understanding of common threats, so that they can
implement a proactive defense against threats targeting their
organizations and industries. The ThreatConnect Intelligence Research
Team (TCIRT) will help guide and moderate this community as it grows.
“Organizations who are concerned about threats targeting their company,
their industry, and Europe at large will benefit greatly from joining
this new community,” said Cyber Squared Inc. CEO Adam Vincent. “A common
problem we hear from organizations coming to ThreatConnect is that they
are suffering from ‘data overload’. ThreatConnect Industry Communities
work, because organizations have access to intelligence that is
relevant, timely, and actionable. Our initial industry community pilots
are reporting impressive results. Our customers are getting insights
into cyber threats facing their organizations through ThreatConnect that
they are not getting from any other sources. The power of the platform’s
automation on top of our customers’ data and clues obtained by the
community to enrich indicators is very powerful.”
In addition to the European Community of Interest, ThreatConnect
continues to grow their Global Financial Services and Health, Medical
and Life Sciences Communities. In just a few months, over 60 Fortune 500
and government organizations have contributed more than 8,000 indicators
and 100 incidents to ThreatConnect Industry Communities. Participants in
ThreatConnect Common and Subscriber Communities benefit from over
130,000 shared indicators and 1,500 incidents. Future plans include
rolling out communities to support customers in the Retail, Merchandise,
Energy & Transportation, Automobile, Telecommunications, and Oil &
Natural Gas industry sectors.
One member of a ThreatConnect private community stated, “Our
participation in a ThreatConnect industry community provided us the
ability to work with other entities where there was no prior
relationship. When we contributed data into the community, we were able
to distribute the analytical load across peer organizations and got back
intelligence where there was no previous awareness.” A case
study which explains the value of community collaboration is
