Information sharing is essential for today’s business and societal transactions. Nevertheless, such a sharing should not violate the security and privacy requirements either dictated by Law to protect data subjects or by internal regulations, which can be provided both at the organisation and at the individual level. An effectual, rapid, and unfailing electronic data sharing among different parties, while protecting legitimate rights on these data, is a key issue with several shades. Among them, how to translate the high-level law obligations, business constraints, and users’ requirements into system-level security and privacy policies, and how to engineer efficient and practical technical solutions for policy definition and enforcement. TELERISE aims at providing a forum for researchers and technicians from the legal and the IT disciplines, both in academia and industry, to foster an exchange of research results, experiences, and products in the area of privacy-preserving and secure data management, as well as, safety aspects in data management systems. The ultimate goal is to conceive new trends and ideas on designing, implementing, and evaluating solutions for safe, reliable, and compliant information sharing, with an eye to the cross-relations between ICT and regulatory aspects of data management.

Title.. Public Disclosure of Cyber Threat Information: Risks and Benefits

Abstract. A growing number of actors perpetrate cyber attacks to various targets, be them public entities, ISPs, enterprises or citizens. Supported by governments or aiming at criminal activities, attackers dispose of channels for sharing and obtaining undisclosed vulnerabilities, attack toolkits and information. On the other hand, attack targets need to react quickly and effectively but they risk to be alone if they do not join forces with others. However timely reactions depend on the quality and timeliness of interactions among peers (e.g., CERTs, public security bodies, ISPs, service providers). There is a need for automated cyber information preparation, sharing and consumption, being fulfilled by initiatives like CybOX, STIX, Taxii, and MISP. However, concerns exist, related to confidential details withing cyber threat information reports, their usage as well as potential data protection laws violations. These constraints render the actual collaboration quite limited in terms of scope. A number of initiatives are focussing on CTI sharing, tackling the most significant obstacles and aiming at bringing benefits to all stakeholders involved in the process. In the talk, risks and benefits will be presented, together with an overview of existing initiatives active in the field.
