Palo Alto Networks recently launched several initiatives to improve threat intelligence sharing. We are also taking a more active participation in the FS-ISAC community as an affiliate member. At the upcoming FS-ISAC Fall Summit in Washington DC, Ryan Olson, intelligence director for Unit 42, will present on recent innovations that have helped companies like yours block and deter cyber attacks. Ryan’s session is on Wednesday, October 15 at 10:00 am EST.
You can get familiar right away with our cybersecurity and threat intelligence initiatives by visiting the following:
- Unit 42 is Palo Alto Networks threat intelligence team and gathers, researches and analyzes up-to-the-minute threat intelligence, sharing insights with customers, partners and the broader community to better protect organizations.
- Cyber Threat Alliance: Our CSO, Rick Howard discussed this initiative in a recent blog, “When We Say Information Sharing, We Mean It: Symantec and McAfee Join Palo Alto Networks and Fortinet in Founding the Cyber Threat Alliance.” The FS-ISAC model for peer information sharing is among those cited by Rick as particularly noteworthy.
The above is in support of the following four innovations that Ryan will discuss during his FS-ISAC Summit presentation:
- Transform tactical incident response teams into strategic intelligence teams
- Evolve from the traditional perimeter defense model to the kill chain model
- Embrace information sharing between peer groups
- Embrace a new paradigm: a platform approach with a next-generation firewall at its core
The Summit is a great opportunity to have 1-1 meetings with our team of threat intelligence experts and take a deep dive on any of the above, as well as discuss your current challenges, learn how to take a new approach to threat detection and prevention, and understand our initiatives to improve the sharing of intelligence.
You can schedule private meetings with our team at the event or stop by our booth #36. And don't forget to tweet to us @PaloAltoNtwks using hashtag #FSISAC if you're at the Summit.
