The experts in combating cyber attacks.
How can a partnership break down taboos?
Data breaches. They’re like deep dark family secrets; they can happen to anyone, but no one wants to talk about them.
FireEye and Visa are trying to fix this with the Community Threat Intelligence program. They’re hacking the status quo of individual enterprises suffering malicious attacks by creating a community—a community that shares real-time information, without the embarrassment.
How does it work?
Subscribing merchants and financial institutions are given curated fraud updates multiple times a week. These updates remove the noise of the countless malicious attacks created every day, by distilling out the most critical ones. FireEye and Visa will then suggest how to address the threats in near real-time by proposing action, to keep other members from being targeted next.
With nearly a million pieces of malicious software created every day, community-based security can’t come fast enough.
