IT Decision-Makers Willing to Share Threat Intel
May 15, 2019 / Kacy Zurkus
The sharing mentality is starting to take hold across the cybersecurity industry, with the vast majority of security decision-makers confessing that they would be willing to share threat intelligence, according to a new publication by IronNet. The report, Collective Offense Calls for Collective Defense: A Reality Check for Cybersecurity Decision Makers, surveyed 200 U.S. security IT decision-makers. Of those, 94% stated that their organization would be willing to increase the level of threat sharing with their industry peers if it demonstrably improved their ability to detect threats. Additionally, 92% of respondents said they would even increase threat sharing with the government if it meant the government could use political, economic, cyber, or other national-level capabilities to deter cyber-attacks, the report said.
