ACT Launches the Threat Taming Tool Collection   

GCA keeps expanding its Actionable Cybersecurity Tools (ACT) wiki, and recently added the Threat Taming Tool Collection (T3C). This collection contains 300 free threat intelligence-related tools that will be very useful for different stakeholders, including governments, to help combat cybersecurity incidents. Understanding threats is critical to modern cyber defense, and fortunately there are free and open-source tools available to help organizations.

“This new collection adds significant tools to help organizations identify and respond to threats, including those who cannot afford a commercial service. Our Cyber Civil Defense (CCD) approach is to provide tools and services that enable a whole-of-society approach to cybersecurity,” Philip Reitinger, GCA’s President & CEO explained. “We have assembled these resources to meet our stakeholders’ needs, and we are proud to bring them relevant mechanisms to improve incident response, defense strategies, and inform their decision-making processes,” he summarized.

According to Gartner’s definition, threat intelligence is evidence-based knowledge (e.g., context, mechanisms, indicators, implications, and action-oriented advice) about existing or emerging menaces or hazards to assets.

Threat intelligence enables us to make faster, more informed, data-backed security decisions and change our behavior from reactive to proactive in the fight against threat actors.

One will be able to find curated information on organizations, tools, and services which can help users proactively identify and mitigate potential threats.
