CISA Director: US Can Adopt Ukraine’s Cyber Threat Information-Sharing Model

The director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said Ukraine’s information-sharing model is a good example of how United States operators should exchange adversarial threat details.

According to 2023 Wash100 awardee Jen Easterly, Ukrainian officials were quick to share information about Russian cyber operations in Ukraine and potential threats to U.S. targets. Easterly said it is a model that Washington could adopt to combat threats. Easterly added that CISA worked with critical infrastructure owners and operators to ensure that information sharing between the government and the private sector would be proactive.

CISA also set up new initiatives, including the Shields Up campaign, to help fend off cyber threats, CyberScoop reported.

The U.S. government has been promoting improved information sharing over the recent months. Speaking at the RSA Conference in late April, CISA and U.S. Cyber Command officials said information-sharing helped them stop foreign attempts to infiltrate systems and federal agencies.

Earlier in the month, National Security Agency Cybersecurity Director and 2022 Wash100 awardee Rob Joyce called on the intelligence community to forge stronger information-sharing partnerships with commercial firms. According to Joyce, private-public partnerships would give the government new perspectives on and a better ability to respond to cyber threats.
