OASIS to host Borderless Cyber Asia Conference on cyber threat intelligence & information sharing

1 November 2016 – Cyber security threats know no boundaries and only through effective information sharing can we improve our state of preparedness, and response to the ever increasing volume and sophistication of attacks. OASIS, the non profit open standards consortium is pioneering collaboration between security professionals in Government, corporations and academic organizations by fostering information sharing techniques, setting standards and providing tools to encourage best practice. For Laurent Liscia, CEO and Executive Director of OASIS the mission is simple, he has observed the security industry evolve from one where the embarrassment of having to reveal a security incident prevented companies from coming together, to one where global communities share threat detection information. “If you have global communities sharing information with one another, you’re abolishing borders, just like Europe has done. Those communities all function according to a standard philosophy: the more you share information about threats, the better you will be prepared as a nation, company, group, alliance, and interconnected world.” To drive this collaboration OASIS created ‘Borderless Cyber’ and following a successful conference in Europe now bring the event to Asia during 1-2 November 2016, with co-host Keio University in Tokyo, Japan. The conference will feature leaders from around the world who will share their multidimensional approaches and how their national strategies are adapting to change. Also, through successful implementations, working cyber security strategies, tools and practices will be demonstrated. For an organization to improve its state of preparedness, the chief information security officer (CISO) and IT security managers need to keep updated with the latest threat information. Therefore Borderless Cyber Asia will address both strategy and implementation topics including: • Dealing with cyber threats on a country level • Center of Excellence: Global cutting-edge approaches in the defense of cyber intelligence threats • Emerging trends in critical infrastructure protection • Privacy laws and transnational agreements • Cyber security solutions, tools and best practices • Fostering information sharing through non-profit international forums • Navigating the global threat landscape from an Enterprise perspective • Automating Cyber Threat Intelligence with STIX, TAXII, CybOX delighted to be attending Borderless Cyber Asia and will be giving a PoC demonstration at their booth to show the concept of CTI-Driven Platform for Proactive Defense. “CTI is five Ws and one H (What, Who, When, Where, Why, and How) of cyber attacks and response information in a machine-understandable format. Fujitsu has developed a cyber threat intelligence (CTI) management system, CTIM, which effectively leverages CTI in cyber attack analyses and responses. We will be demonstrating this at Borderless Cyber Asia and hope to show this concept to attendees“. Hirohito Aoki, VP, Deputy Head of Defense Systems Unit, Fujitsu.Ltd.
