Collaborative Security is ...
Practitioners of collaborative security are informed by the threats we face, and defend against the tactics being used against us. We are not distracted by the never-ending parade of new point- security technologies that dominate our industry.
Outcome-Based and Measurable
Practitioners of collaborative security deploy security solutions with purpose and measurable effect. Security solutions need to evolve to remain effective at reducing risks and retired when no longer effective. Whatever the effectiveness of a security measure, if its cost exceeds the risk it mitigates, it's time to stop and apply that investment to other under-managed risks.
Realized by Working Together
Defenders working together to gain advantage over adversaries is a key tenet to success. As attackers use a relatively common set of tools and techniques to attack multiple targets, defenders elevate each other by sharing intelligence, strategies, and material support.
Practitioners of collaborative security understand that their own security is a function of the security of known and unknown partners—and the Internet as a whole—and actively contribute to our shared security, stability and resiliency. In an increasingly interconnected world where supply chains, cloud services and other business partnerships demand connectivity and interdependence, risk is reduced for everyone when collaboration happens through information, intelligence and expertise sharing. Just as many individually secure homes tend to reduce nearby property crime, many individually secure enterprises effectively working together will improve their collective security posture.
