2020: Supporting the Security Community in a Tumultuous Time
By Josh Lefkowitz
During one of the most challenging years on record, Flashpoint has been proud to support the security community by empowering CTI and SOC teams, fraud teams, and corporate security teams to identify and mitigate the threats that matter most.
In response to COVID-19, Flashpoint put together several programs in partnership with multiple ISACs, offering ISAC members extended access to leverage our intelligence and data to help them reduce risk exposure, reduce fraud losses, and save time. We worked across verticals with ISAC members from healthcare, hospitality, aviation, and retail to help them ramp-up their intelligence efforts to meet this year’s challenges and threats head on.
We were proud to hear feedback from Errol Weiss, CSO for the Health Information Sharing & Analysis Center (Health-ISAC), that our efforts were extremely helpful in supporting the healthcare community: “Flashpoint jumped on the opportunity to help our Health-ISAC members with their threat intelligence needs. Given the unique challenges that we are now facing in the health sector, including sophisticated nation states launching cyber attacks against firms doing COVID-19 Research & Development, Flashpoint’s ingrained commitment to information sharing makes them a true partner for any organization looking to explore threat intelligence solutions. We’re happy to partner with them in many capacities.”
We’ve worked hard to make intelligence actionable for everyone with our platform, whether you’re a large, multinational financial organization, a small hospital, and everywhere in between. Trial users reported “excellent content” and “great information,” a platform with an “intuitive interface”, and “fantastic support”, all leading them to save time finding and mitigating relevant threats.
Below are quotes from two users we supported with access to our data, intelligence, and collaborative community. Note we have kept these quotes anonymous to protect their privacy:
“Great information, well presented, and intuitive interface.”
“Excellent content, portal is well designed, fantastic support.”
A month ago, we hosted our first virtual user conference with hundreds of our clients participating alongside new users part of our ISAC collaboration. The strong sense of community that everyone established throughout the sessions and interactions was exactly what was needed to address the threats we face together. A common theme throughout the conference was the repeated emphasis on the need for intelligence sharing. More than ever, we rely on each other’s expertise, knowledge, and first-hand experience to solve challenges and help each other.
Building on the positive impact we’ve made for the community in our ISAC trial programs, we’ve decided to make trial access a permanent program. We’re confident that after leveraging our platform for 30 days, new users will immediately benefit from actionable intelligence that saves you substantial time and effort, while keeping you and your team focused on the most critical threats currently out there and on the horizon.
