NJCCIC AND FS-ISAC PARTNER TO DELIVER CYBER THREAT INTELLIGENCE AND USE OF SOLTRA EDGE AT THE STATE LEVEL
July 8, 2015
Trenton, NJ and Reston, VA – The New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) and The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) announced today a partnership to share and analyze cyber threat information on behalf of New Jersey’s banking institutions. Under the terms of the agreement, the NJCCIC’s cyber threat analysts will correlate data from various global financial institutions to identify trends, adversary tactics, and vulnerabilities. Both parties will adhere to strict handling and dissemination protocols to protect the anonymity of the information source and preserve the integrity of the data as a means of mitigating emergent threats.
This partnership is an important public-private collaboration and is a formal agreement between FS-ISAC, one of the best-regarded Information sharing communities and NJCCIC, a state-level organization serving a regional jurisdiction. The NJCCIC is New Jersey’s recently established information sharing and analysis organization (ISAO), which is committed to promoting awareness of cyber threats and adoption of best practices across the State’s public and private sectors.
