cyberwarfareThe Department of Homeland Security‘s Automated Indicator Sharing program under the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 has become a two-way exchange of information between government and industry partners on malicious cyber acts, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

Scott Maucione writes Andy Ozment, DHS assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications, noted that Redwood City, California-based cybersecurity company Anomali has participated in an exchange of data with DHS on cyber threat indicators.

Todd Helfrich, Anomali vice president of federal, told Federal News Radio that the company has sent DHS information indicators of compromises such as IP addresses, domain names and hash values.

“At the end of the day our goal is to reduce the adversary dwell time in the networks … taking an indicator and matching it within security architecture helps us defend against known adversary activities,” added Helfrich.
