I am excited to share that SecurityScorecard is now formally a member of the Information Technology Sector Coordinating Council (IT-SCC).
Established in 2006, the IT SCC is the principal entity for coordinating with the government on a wide range of critical infrastructure protection activities and cybersecurity issues. The IT-SCC brings together companies, associations, and other key IT sector leaders to work collaboratively with the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies and officials on critical infrastructure protection and cybersecurity policy.
From the SolarWinds hack, the scourge of ransomware attacks, to the widespread Log4j vulnerability, to the mounting geopolitical tensions, it is more important than ever to participate in public-private partnerships like the IT-SCC. Working with our partners, we can raise the cyber security and risk posture of the IT industry, and help each other understand and mitigate the threats to this critical infrastructure sector.
We are especially proud to join the Small- and Medium-Size Businesses Working Group, the State, Local, Tribal, Territorial Government Working Group, and the Information and Communications Technology Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force (ICT-SCRM Task Force.). These Working Groups will focus on identifying challenges and opportunities facing IT sector’s small and medium-size businesses, and identify key trends that can help resource-constrained state, local, territorial, and tribal governments implement IT modernization and cybersecurity enhancements.
And we look forward to partnering with all members of the IT-SCC, including the Center for Internet Security, CompTIA, Crowdstrike, the Cyber Threat Alliance, Fortinet, Information Technology Industry Council, Mandiant, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, and Tenable.
