"This will help us get a better understanding of the scope and magnitude of intruder activity," said Kathy Fithen, manager of the CERT Coordination Center. "Sharing information is the best way for all of us to address this problem. Everybody wins with this agreement. The coordination center grew out of the CERT effort, which was begun initiated by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in 1988. CERT works with the Internet community to facilitate defensive responses to computer security threats and conducts research targeted at improving the security of existing systems and software. According to Fithen, the pilot project will focus on finding the most effective ways to share and distribute information throughout the critical infrastructure protection community. The CERT Coordination Center plans to expand the program to include other companies and institutions once officials at the center have found the most effective methods for sharing information, Fithen said. "We want to get better at conducting early warning," Fithen said. "[The pilot] is critical to the success of attacking the problem of information assurance. In addition to conducting staff exchanges with iDefense, the CERT Coordination Center plans to make available hundreds of gigabytes of data on the last ten years' worth of known technology vulnerabilities, including known hacker methods and profiles and security flaws of various software. A secure intranet portal also will be established to enable iDefense and CERT Coordination Center analysts to access and share data. iDefense will use the cooperative agreement to enhance its current offerings in cybersecurity trend analysis, threat predictions and recommendations for defenses. Fithen said sharing information with companies like iDefense is critical because hackers have been doing it successfully for years. "We haven't been as free and open in sharing our information to protect systems," Fithen said.

Speaking in a personal capacity as a subject matter expert, Katherine Fithen, chief privacy officer at Coca-Cola, put forward a "privacy by design approach" at the event.
In her role, Fithen is constantly on the look-out for the whereabouts of "the creepy line" in the drinks giant's communications with customers. Coca-Cola has just passed its 50 millionth engagement on Facebook, she reported.
Listening to customers on social media is one good way to locate the creepy line, she said.
"It is hard to predict. In the US, it is not creepy that the grocery store knows what we buy. In other cultures, it is considered creepy to track that. The use of GPS [global positioning satellite] data is not creepy for some cultures; it is for others," said Fithen.
"You have to know truly where the data is stored - not just that it is with some suppler, but where it is geographically," she said, commending Amazon Web Services' (AWS) option to be able to choose a region when using its cloud services.
Coca-Cola has been on a 10-year data governance journey, with data management decision-making embedded throughout the organisation, she said.
