Singapore – 6 October 2020 - Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OT-ISAC) is pleased to announce it has formed an intelligence sharing relationship with TWCERT, which coordinates Taiwan’s handling of information security incidents and services across government, academia and research.
“We continue to add new sharing partners to the OT-ISAC community to enrich cyber threat warning and mitigation capability for our members,” said John Lee, OT-ISAC Managing Director. “The TWCERT mission works in parallel to our own and we’re pleased to engage them in a way that broadens our mutual awareness and increases our response capabilties to malicious threat actors.”
TWCERT coordinates the handling of domestic security incidents and sharing of information in Taiwan and engages international information security organizations to grasp the latest development trends in international information security. The relationship with OT-ISAC furthers this mission and strengthens the security of organizations operating in Singapore, Taiwan and other entities in the greater APAC region.
OT-ISAC, a threat information sharing hub for companies in energy, water and other critical sectors, uses proven tools and technologies to aid member companies as they exchange details of OT and IT threats and attacks on their organisations, to prevent and quickly mitigate and contain damage caused by malicious actors.
Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OT-ISAC) is a secure threat information sharing community for Operational Technology asset owners and operates headquartered in Asia Pacific. A member company can securely and anonymously share threat information with OT-ISAC analysts who further enrich and disseminate actionable alerts, intelligence and best practices for all community members to defend themselves and take mitigating action against malicious actors, their tools, and system exploits.
OT-ISAC also partners with government, private vendors and other information sharing organisations to acquire and disseminate timely and relevant information for the resilience of member companies.
