OT-ISAC and Group-IB Partner to Exchange Adversary-Centric Threat Intelligence

Group-IB, a global threat hunting and adversary-centric cyber intelligence company that specializes in investigating and preventing hi-tech cybercrimes, is pleased to announce it has formed an intelligence sharing relationship with Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OT-ISAC), a threat information sharing hub for critical infrastructure entities in APAC that aids member companies in preventing or quickly mitigating cyber risks by exchanging details of OT and IT threats and attacks.

Group-IB focuses on research and prevention of advanced threats by persistent cybercriminals and has engaged with OT-ISAC to help enhance the resilience of Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) and companies using Operational Technology in Asia Pacific. Through this partnership OT-ISAC threat analysts and member organizations will receive regular threat intelligence data obtained by Group-IB in cybercrime research and investigations worldwide to advance threat information sharing and cybersecurity maturity. Group-IB and OT-ISAC will notify each other of critical cyber incidents, in particular impacting CII, and may also collaborate on joint projects of interest to operational technology-using sectors.

Group-IB brings exceptional cybersecurity talent to this partnership and we are pleased to be able to leverage their expertise to help enhance the security of our members. Our community of members is committed to strengthening the continuity and security of CII owners and operators in greater Asia Pacific, and Group-IB threat information will greatly assist in that mission.

Сyber weapons are being increasingly used for sabotage activities against OT networks by cybercriminals who most frequently attack OT network segments by compromising the IT network segment. Group-IB’s team of engineers believes that detection systems and algorithms have to be adversary-aware; this means that alerts have to come with either clear technical justification or full intelligence context on a given threat: who the attackers are, what their motivation is, what their tactic is, and what IOCs and TTPs are expected to be used in further attacks.

Group-IB is one of the leading providers of solutions dedicated to detecting and preventing cyberattacks, identifying online fraud, investigation of high-tech crimes and intellectual property protection, headquartered in Singapore. The company’s threat intelligence and research centers are located in the Middle East (Dubai), the Asia-Pacific (Singapore), Europe (Amsterdam), and Russia (Moscow).

Group-IB’s Threat Intelligence & Attribution system has been named one of the best in class by Gartner, Forrester, and IDC. Group-IB’s Threat Hunting Framework (earlier known as TDS) intended for the proactive search and the protection against complex and previously unknown cyberthreats has been recognized as one of the leaders in Network Detection and Response by the leading European analyst agency KuppingerCole Analysts AG, while Group-IB itself has been recognized as a Product Leader and Innovation Leader. Gartner identified Group-IB as a Representative Vendor in Online Fraud Detection for its Fraud Hunting Platform. In addition, Group-IB was granted Frost & Sullivan’s Innovation Excellence award for its Digital Risk Protection (DRP), an Al-driven platform for identifying and mitigating digital risks and counteracting brand impersonation attacks with the company’s patented technologies at its core.

Group-IB’s technological leadership and R&D capabilities are built on the company’s 18 years of hands-on experience in cybercrime investigations worldwide and 70,000 hours of cybersecurity incident response accumulated in our leading forensic laboratory, high-tech crime investigations department, and round-the-clock CERT-GIB.
