Strength in Numbers – Combatting a Common Enemy presented at CISOsanfran 2015

by Colin Anderson, Laura Hamady, Eddie Borrero,

Summary : As competitive as the economy can be, CISOs generally agree that public-private sharing of security information is often beneficial if not necessary to effectively combat cyber-attacks and stay abreast of evolving security threats. Colin Anderson, a veteran CISO, describes the threat landscape as a “common enemy requiring a coordinated response.” While CISOs may lean toward open dialogue, they often need to balance information-sharing in light of competitive, privacy and legal concerns. Join Anderson and legal counsel Laura Hamady as they discuss the benefits and drawbacks to information sharing, and potential legal implications for businesses.
