news from DCOi 2016
We've been attending DCOi 2016, the second annual US-Israeli cyber security conference that's meeting this week in Washington, DC. We'll have an extensive report tomorrow once the conference concludes, but we'll offer some quick takes from yesterday's sessions.
If there's one big thing the US officials from the Department of Homeland Security who spoke want everyone to know, it's that the US is serious about cyber threat intelligence sharing. Senior officials, including Deputy Secretary Mayorkas, maintain that DHS has figured out how to enable information to be shared anonymously, yet effectively, and quickly enough to be actionable.
The one big thing the Israeli officials and businesses want you to know? It's this: Israel's cyber industry, while small by American standards, is very big by global standards, and, above all, it's very, very fast indeed.
We expect to hear some interesting presentations in the next few hours, notably from US NSA Director Rogers. We'll be live-tweeting our observations (follow @thecyberwire for updates.)
