About this event

The Center for Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure (CTSC) announces the Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CCOE)Webinar Series to fulfill their mission of providing readily available cybersecurity services tailored to the NSF science community. 

CERN's Romain Wartel will present.  Be sure to check spam/junk folder for registration confirmation with attached calendar file.

Threat intelligence has become a very popular keyword among security professionals in the recent years. What is this all about? Is this a service for sale or rather an intangible asset resulting from a trust relationship? Every organization is seeking relevant and target intelligence, ideally at little to no cost and yielding no false-positives. What are the myths and realities? Is threat intelligence a worthy investment? Is it more suitable to favor local or global sources? Are there services or tools that can facilitate threat intelligence management. Beyond obtaining information, an often overlooked aspect are the challenges linked with building the ability to take promptly and effectively action based on specific intelligence. Making good use of threat intelligence is what makes its value, but this requires time and efforts. Yet, a well-designed threat intelligence management and flow may in fact be the only realistic and affordable strategy for our community to mitigate sophisticated threats or well-funded attackers on a daily basis.

The webinars are recorded and will be linked on YouTube and on this page for later viewing. Each webinar includes time for questions from attendees, so please join the live webinar if you are able. They use Adobe Connect to conduct the webinars (test your connection, Adobe add-in not required for participants). Participant lines are muted. They provide a chat box for participant questions.

Upcoming topics are communicated on their blog.  If you have questions or comments after the webinar, please join their discussion mailing list. To submit topics or request to present, contact them here.
