NCI Agency and Industry experts have stepped up their collaboration aimed at improving our defences against cyber threats.
As part of this ongoing cooperation, Agency and Industry representatives held a cyber Threat Vector Analysis workshop which was hosted by Fortinet in Valbonne, France on August 23, 2016.
Building upon previous challenges
This workshop focused on Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks, which is a threat that both NATO and industry regularly experience. The aim of this latest joint effort was to better understand the evolution of DDOS attacks in order to improve defences against them.
The Threat Vector Analysis (TVA) workshops are a key activity of the NATO Industry Cyber Partnership (NICP) and are focused on developing a common taxonomy for threats and the use of standards in exchanging cyber threat information in order to improve understanding and the efficiency of information sharing, ultimately leading to better collective cyber defence.
