Proactive solutions to protect our CONNECTED world

Risk Management

As the Internet continues to evolve and becomes interwoven into the fabric of our everyday lives, more and more organizations are building up their online presence and conducting business processes exclusively online. With so much information moving through cyberspace comes greater risk for information compromise. Over the past decade, cyber-attacks have accelerated in frequency, likelihood, and sophistication, which is why cyber defense and cybersecurity awareness are so important.

 

NC4's cyber defense solutions have been operationally proven for over 18 years, supporting communities that span domestic and foreign government agencies and private companies in the exchange of cyber threat intelligence and the advancement of cybersecurity awareness.

NC4's Automated Intelligence Sharing solution provides a single trusted platform for collecting cyber threat intelligence (CTI) from multiple sources. It reduces the attack surface and streamlines the collection of intelligence feeds to give companies the ability to fine tune the intelligence that is routed to internal systems. Automation allows cyber security teams to gather intelligence about attacks from similar organizations, helps to priorize the most important threats first and accelerates defensive actions by routing intelligence quickly to security teams. NC4 has been providing machine-to-machine information sharing for some of the most important industries including aerospace and defense, financial services, healthcare, government and energy sectors.

Studies from the IACD project at Johns Hopkins showed our solution reduced critical response time from awareness to decision to under a minute and decision to action to under 30 seconds.

Benefits of NC4’s Automated Intelligence Sharing include:

  • Leveraging widely available large-scale cyber threat intelligence to protect your networks
  • Aggregating outside feeds into a single source to reduce chaos and risk in your environment
  • Providing interoperability with many third party vendors
  • Using standards to automate the flow of data

On the battleground of cyber warfare where both communities and organizations are overloaded, triage of cyber threats is essential. The Cyber Defense Network (CDN) provides a multi-tier cyber triage capability to speed decision making and action initiation. Fast, effective, and efficient triage is accomplished by a composite of people, technology, and processes enabled by CDN.

Already powering the next generation of ISACs and ISAOs with its advanced triage and automation capabilities, CDN is equally as effective for Enterprise risk management teams, CISOs, and SOC analysts, as it improves internal effectiveness and efficiency in triaging, analyzing, coordinating, and responding to cyber threats.

The foundational elements of Cyber Defense Network:

  • Secure Collaboration - Created as a highly secure, web-based solution used by cybersecurity specialists in the world's top critical infrastructure communities, these tools are used to enhance circles of trust and reduce the operational friction to share information.
  • Machine Automation - Using industry standards, allows users to collect information from multiple sources into one central respository to be analyzed and shared back with other operational devices or sharing communities.
  • Community Enrichment - By enabling conversations and advanced analytics to showcase community action on common threats, members can easily see which threats pose the greatest danger and how similar teams are responding to an event.
