Cyber Threat Alliance – Cybercrime Protection Information. A group of security heavy hitters — Symantec, Palo Alto Networks, McAfee (now part of Intel Security) and Fortinet — came together in 2014 to co-found the Cyber Threat Alliance. The mission of the alliance is to drive a coordinated industry effort against cyber-adversaries through deep collaboration on threat intelligence. Keeping ahead of increasingly sophisticated cybercrime attacks requires in-depth and constant knowledge of the fast-moving threat landscape. The Cyber Threat Alliance will provide the framework for the companies to educate one another on complex and multidimensional attacks, moving beyond just sharing malware samples. The information addressed includes details on zero-day vulnerabilities, botnet command and control (C&C) server information, mobile malware samples, and indicators of compromise (IoCs) related to advanced persistent threats (APTs).
