Washington – The Cyber Threat Alliance has been selected as a finalist in the 2nd annual .ORG Impact Awards, which honors remarkable .ORGs and individuals positively impacting their communities and making the world a better place. The awards are hosted by the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the people behind .ORG.
The Cyber Threat Alliance is one of the top five entries in the Promoting A Safer Internet category for its work to improve the safety and security of the digital ecosystem through threat intelligence sharing and collaboration. Since 2017, CTA has developed and operationalized an automated threat data sharing platform with over 100 million observables shared to date. It has also achieved a regular cadence of early warnings and research sharing among its private-sector members, and fosters collaboration around securing major events and disrupting malicious activity.
More than 500 organizations and individuals submitted entries this year.  Submissions were reviewed and scored by a panel of judges who are leaders in the Internet, non-profit, health, education and marketing sectors. All nominations must be tied to an active website with a .ORG domain.
“We’re very excited to be named as a finalist for the .ORG Impact Award.  CTA’s mission is to make our digital environment more secure and resilient by enabling collaboration among cybersecurity providers.   We are a digitally dependent society, so protecting our on-line spaces is just as important as protecting our physical spaces.  CTA is proud to contribute to this work every day,” said Michael Daniel, President and CEO, Cyber Threat Alliance
“The .ORG Impact Awards celebrate and showcase the incredible work that mission-driven organizations are doing in their communities and around the world,” said Jon Nevett, President and CEO of the Public Interest Registry. “We want to thank all those who submitted entries and congratulate all the finalists. We look forward to celebrating all the finalists and announcing the winners at the Ten Days of .ORG later this year.”
This year’s finalists and winners will be celebrated as part of the “The Ten Days of .ORG,” an online experience beginning on November 30 that celebrates the range of achievements that have healed, inspired, transformed and connected communities over the past year. Follow and tune into @PIRegistry on social media to watch the Ten Days of .ORG presentations November 30 through December 11.
