With any good football team, both the offense and defense huddle, communicate, collaborate, and react in a coordinated way. If the eleven defenders all acted alone, without coordination, to individually try to stop the front line, the results would be a disaster.

Cybersecurity should be no different, yet most defenders operate in disconnected silos, unable to work together, call coordinated plays, or form any coherent line of defense. It’s time for a different approach to change the game.

Join security expert Jason Keirstead from Cyware for a discussion of the importance of Collective Threat Defense, and practical ways we can all start sharing intelligence and collaborating across organizations and industries to disrupt and defeat well organized attacker game plans.
