HKCERT and Cybersec Infohub Fully Support Open Threat Intelligence Campaign
To help organisations enhance their cyber security defence capabilities, the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) collaborates with Cybersec Infohub to launch the Open Threat Intelligence Campaign. Through the collaboration, local and overseas threat intelligence collected by HKCERT and cyber security researchers around the world will be contributed to the collaborative platform of Cybersec Infohub.
Threat intelligence gives organisations better visibility into the latest cyber threat landscape and enables them to stay ahead of threat actors’ next move. Member organisations of Cybersec Infohub can access the latest local threat intelligence data for early identification or proactive blocking of suspicious network activities, such as IP addresses involved in Botnets and links to phishing websites, and thus, taking mitigation measures promptly against security incidents.
HKCERT uses Cybersec Infohub as an integrated intelligence sharing platform to provide automatic integration of threat intelligence feeds with organisations’ security systems by means of machine-to-machine (M2M) sharing. IT administrators may consider utilising such feature to integrate the feeds into network devices that support automatic blocking. For some organisations which are outsourcing their IT services, they may consult their service providers for subscription to the free threat intelligence service.
