Welcome to the July 2015 Newsletter.

There seems to be a growing realisation that sharing security intelligence is the way forward for combatting cybercrime, as evidenced by a new survey by The Aspen Institute and Intel Security, featured in the news section this month. The survey, which interviewed 625 IT decision makers with influence over their organisation’s security solutions in France, Germany, the UK and the US, found that 86% of respondents “Saw a need for public-private threat intelligence sharing to keep pace with escalating cybersecurity threats.” 76% of survey respondents also indicated they believe a national defence force should respond when a cyber-attack damages a critical infrastructure company within national borders.

AlienVault, also featured in this month’s news, is one of the security companies pioneering such a use of shared threat intelligence through their Open Threat Exchange (OTX). Described as “One of the first crowd-sourced threat-sharing systems in the industry,” OTX is open to anyone to participate in, and not just AlienVault customers. Barmak Meftah, president and CEO of AlienVault said ahead of the new OTX release that “It has been shown time and time again, that if we work together as a community and freely share threat information and resources we can identify attacks sooner and react quicker, before they become devastating breaches. A collaborative defence is the only way to get ahead of the attackers.”

Sticking with freedom of security information (or the lack thereof perhaps) it was announced just as we were about to hit send on this month’s edition that Edward Snowden is to give the keynote address at this year's IP EXPO in October. That’s quite a headline grabbing headliner! Details are a little sparse so far but apparently Snowden “Will speak exclusively to the IP EXPO Europe audience live by satellite, from an undisclosed location” in an interview with Andrew Neil. If it’s anything like Snowden’s enthralling appearance on John Oliver “Last Week Tonight” show then count us in!
