Operationalizing Threat Information Sharing: Beyond Policies and Platitudes

Presented at ShmooCon X (2014), Jan. 18, 2014, 3 p.m. (60 minutes)

Threat intelligence sharing is a hot topic of conversation today that already affects or soon will affect most of us in the infosec community. Like most hot topics this tends to generate a lot of cliched buzzworditis and well-meant but unrealistic policy. Cue the shmooballs!

But what does it take to move beyond just talking about cyber threat intelligence sharing and making it an operational reality. This session will include discussion of the challenges involved in operational implementations and will provide real-world lessons learned from one of the world's leading threat intel sharing programs (the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC).
