Fresh off the recent passing of the Cybersecurity (Information Sharing) Act of 2015, DHS and DOJ have issued guidance on the sharing cyber threats information. The first publication describes how non-federal entities should share indicators and countermeasures with federal entities in order to gain the legal protection granted by CISA. The second one addresses how the government should share with non-government entities. Both are pretty short reads weighing in at 21 pages each.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with the Department of Justice, issued two sets of guidelines and procedures, required by the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, for federal agencies and the private sector to use regarding the sharing of cyber threat indicators.
The department issued one set of guidelines to assist non-federal entities on how to share cyber threat indicators and defensive measures, and another set to detail how the federal government will share and use said information.
