ENISA publishes the first comprehensive study on cyber Threat Intelligence Platforms

ENISA has released the first comprehensive study on cyber Threat Intelligence Platforms (TIPs) focused on the needs of consumers, users, developers, vendors and the security research community.

The study channels its efforts into identifying some of the key opportunities and limitations of existing platforms and solutions, since information exchange formats and tools remain central items on the agenda of the cybersecurity community in general, and particularly of incident responders.

ENISA publishes reports on PPPs and ISACs

A common objective of every European national cyber security strategy is collaboration to enhance cyber security across all levels, from threat information sharing to awareness raising. Collaboration is often achieved through two formal structures: Information Sharing and Analysis Centres (ISACs) and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

ENISA collected information on best practices and common approaches that resulted in two studies, namely Cooperative Models for Public Private Partnership and Information Sharing and Analysis Centres.
