Subject: RE: [cti] CTI-Outreach Sub-Committee Nominations/Discussion

Also agree with comment in an earlier thread that this SC ought to have engagement as a core focus rather than outreach - and that ought to be reflected in the name of any proposed SC.

Hi Rich,

There is a great symmetry occurring here on a global scale.

The first day of the annual cybersecurity workshop was held this afternoon here in Sophia Antipolis in France's approximation of Silicon Valley in the hills of Valbonne, France.  There are people here from around the world, but this afternoon was somewhat Euro centric with key officials describing what was essential to regional and national cybersecurity.  Perhaps not by coincidence, cyber threat intelligence sharing was at the top of their lists - along with security assurance.

The four people who were engaged at this session were:

o Florent Frederix who heads the key Network Information Security
(NIS) initiative of the the European Commission and has some responsibilities at the Directorate level similar to Rich Struse's as the execution arm of the EU cybersecurity strategy - the analog of the White House's framework initiatives.

o Chris Ensor who heads up cybersecurity work in the UK's CESG organization - also similar to Rich's responsibilities.

o Marc Henauer of Switzerland's MELANI organization that is similar the principal Swiss threat intelligence sharing body.

o Edri an Belmonte, who plays the lead role in this area in ENISA

All of the presentations except Cris Ensor's are available at:

In the discussion session following the presentations, speaking at the ETSI TC CYBER threat intelligence sharing rapporteur, I had the opportunity to explain the creation of the new TC CTI committee and how the platforms being pursued in CTI were proven best-of-breed models and structured information sharing specifications that provided an ideal match to each of their objectives.

It was quite amazing how each of the parties - even in Europe - was rather independently pursuing similar objectives.

We also discussed how the work of TC CYBER was to survey the global cybersecurity ecosystem and make use of the most successful existing standards and not pursue duplicative work.  Everyone seemed in agreement, and going forward, there seems like an excellent basis for convergence with the CTI work now getting underway.

There will be further discussion at the workshop over the next two days as well as definitive actions at the TC CYBER meeting on Thursday and Friday.  It was a good beginning that was continued usefully over local provence wine and hors d'oeuves this evening (and setting a useful precedent for future TC CTI physical gatherings).
