ThreatPost goes New School

In “It’s Time to Start Sharing Attack Details,” Dennis Fisher says:

With not even half of the year gone, 2011 is becoming perhaps the ugliest year on record for major attacks, breaches and incidents. Lockheed Martin, one of the larger suppliers of technology and weapons systems to the federal government, has become the latest high-profile target of a serious attack, and while such incidents are bad news indeed for the victims, they may serve a vital purpose in forcing companies to disclose more data about breaches and attacks.

I’m glad to see that the data sharing message is spreading, and I look forward to seeing RSA and Lockheed releasing VERIS or CAPEC-coded descriptions of what happened.
