HHS’ Leo Scanlon: Collaborative Model Can Help Firms Defend Against Cyber Threats

cybersecuritySome former and current government security officials who took part in a panel discussion held Friday in Washington believe collaboration between technology users in the public and private sectors is key to address advanced cyber threats, Fedscoop reported Friday.

Greg Otto writes Leo Scanlon, acting chief information security officer of the Department of Health and Human Services, said the Information Sharing and Analysis Center can serve as a collaborative model for companies who aim to secure their information technology systems.

“I think it’s a very effective step,” Scanlon told the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium-hosted panel discussion Friday.

“I think it’s introducing a capability that’s particularly useful in places that we don’t expect to be able to field full blown IT [security operations center] capabilities,” he added, according to the report.

The report said the Information Sharing Analysis Organization Standards Organization developed a framework for the establishment of threat data sharing hubs.
