CYBERUK19: GCHQ Ramps Up Intelligence Sharing with UK Firms
GCHQ boss Jeremy Fleming has revealed how the government listening post has improved its collaboration with UK businesses over the past year, to enable intelligence sharing within seconds. Fleming told an audience of IT security professionals at the government’s CYBERUK conference in Glasgow yesterday that the agency is sharing intelligence with banks to enable real-time customer alerts, as well as the wider business community. “In the last year we have made it simple for our analysts to share time critical, secret information in a matter of seconds. With just one click, this information is being shared and action is being taken,” he added. “In the coming year, we will continue to scale this capability so — whether it's indicators of a nation state cyber actor, details of malware used by cyber-criminals or credit cards being sold on the dark web — we will declassify this information and get it back to those who can act on it.” This is the result of the Industry100 initiative coordinated by GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). Fleming claimed it had been so successful that the project will be made permanent in the future.
