The Department of Homeland Security believes it is making progress in helping to protect critical infrastructure in the U.S. as industry and other stakeholders continue to share cyber threat information, Federal Times reported Friday.
Amber Corrin writes the DHS is seeing increased adoption of the Structured Threat Information eXpression and Trusted Automated eXchange of Indicator Information standards for machine-to-machine data sharing.
Ann Barron-DiCamillo, manager and chief of operations for DHS’ US-CERT program, said communications of cyber intelligence communications between partners and stakeholders is gaining ground, according to Federal Times.
DHS worked with MITRE Corp. to develop the STIX international standard for cyber threat data sharing, the report said.
Barron-DiCamillo also told a recent event in Washington that global partners are using TAXII as the protocol for sharing the data, Federal Times reports.
Corrin writes the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center has joined the initiative.
