Increasing cybersecurity threats against critical infrastructure
have prompted several cybersecurity and operational technology vendors, including Forescout, Schneider Electric, 1898 & Co., Claroty, Dragos, NetRise, Nozomi Networks, Tenable, Waterfall Security, and Network Perception to unveil the new Emerging THreat Open Sharing, or ETHOS, platform aimed at providing early alerts on attacks targeted at various industrial sectors, CyberScoop
Developed as an open-source and vendor-agnostic threat intelligence sharing portal, ETHOS enables automated threat information discovery and dissemination to its members, resulting in more extensive insights on OT system threats, according to Tenable Deputy Chief Technology Officer for OT and IoT Marty Edwards. Such a system has gained the approval of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
"CISA is eager to continue support for community-driven efforts to reduce silos that impede timely and effective information sharing. We look forward to collaborating with such communities, including the ETHOS community, to improve early warning and response to potential cyber threats, while appropriately protecting sensitive information about our nations critical infrastructure community," said CISA Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity Eric Goldstein.
