Cyware Solutions Empower MTS-ISAC's Stakeholder Collaboration on Threat Intelligence Initiatives
NEW YORK and WILMINGTON, Del., April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyware, the industry's only Virtual Cyber Fusion Platform provider, today announced a partnership with the Maritime Transportation System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MTS-ISAC) to enhance the maritime community's ability to collect and share threat intelligence in a timely manner. As part of the partnership, Cyware will enable MTS-ISAC's community to run more efficient end-to-end security automation, cybersecurity operations, threat hunting and incident response programs.
The MTS-ISAC is an information exchange built around a community-of-communities approach and has become the trusted entity for MTS stakeholders to report and share information and threat intelligence. The organization was founded in early 2020 with a mission to improve cyber risk management across the MTS community through collaboration around intelligence, identification, information protection, detection, response and recovery. MTS-ISAC has emerged as a trusted point of coordination for some of the most influential private and public sector stakeholders in the global maritime community, representing ports, terminal operators, vessel operators, cruise, classification societies, energy and government industry stakeholders.
"Cyware provides a unique offering that meets modern cybersecurity needs while also addressing the operational and workflow challenges that many of us in the maritime sector face," said Scott Dickerson, MTS-ISAC's Executive Director. "As the threat landscape continues to evolve, Cyware provides our community stakeholders with secure operations and opportunities for collaborative threat response. This empowers our community to adopt proven risk management strategies and improve the collective resilience across our sector."
"As threat activity has accelerated and evolved, MTS-ISAC stakeholders rely on shared threat intelligence to improve awareness and threat response," said David Cordell, CIO at the Port of New Orleans. "Having the capability offered through the MTS-ISAC from Cyware gives us an easy, visible way to share and collaborate across the MTS-ISAC community quickly and effectively around critical threats to ports, infrastructure and shipping. This gives each MTS-ISAC stakeholder a new level of shared situational awareness."
