ARIN 48 – Evolving Cybersecurity, Strategies for the New Normal

It was great participating in this panel discussion today, exploring the different ways law enforcement, international organizations, service providers, and standards development organizations are shifting their strategies to address an evolving threat landscape.

The cross-cutting theme that was evident in each presentation was COLLABORATION. More specifically, each panelist repeatedly emphasised the importance of cross-border, cross-sectoral collaboration in effectively combating cybercrime. 

It is essential that both businesses and governments anticipate and incentivise collaboration and accountability through strong public-private partnerships (PPPs), which will make it more difficult for threat actors to commit criminal acts online. For the private sector, it’s essential for business to enhance information-sharing relationships, within industry and with the public sector, to deliver a more all encompassing approach to incident response, threat management and disruption of cybercrime.Through collaboration and cooperation, and creating implementing mechanisms for information-sharing and tactical collaboration, the good guys will make successful inroads into the fight against global cybercrime.

Thanks to the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) for the opportunity to share my thoughts!
