Sharing Threat Intelligence Within a Trusted Community

  • Would you benefit from learning of the experiences and receiving guidance from a network of your cybersecurity peers?
  • Does your team feel inundated by the volume of the threat intelligence they receive from third parties, or would they 
be aided by curated threat data from a trusted source?
  • Would peer group discussions about prioritizing security operation investments in resources, technology and effort accelerate and inform your decisions?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Columbus Collaboratory ISAO can help.
