Jeanette Manfra: DHS to Update Automated Cyber Threat Indicator Sharing Platform

1 min read


The Department of Homeland Security wants to update an automated technology platform DHS personnel use to share threat information with other federal agencies, infrastructure operators and companies, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Jeanette Manfra, assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications at DHS’ National Protection and Programs Directorate, said at a US Telecom-hosted cybersecurity forum the department seeks to address customer organizations’ concerns over threat indicators that lack information for them to prevent malicious data from entering networks.

DHS’ automated indicator sharing system is designed to help federal government and private sector users exchange data to address security challenges such as the distribution of malicious IP addresses and phishing emails.

Manfra added that DHS could update the platform in the summer or fall to include a tool for users to send automated feedback to the department about the usefulness of threat intelligence data they receive.
