WASHINGTON, DC, December 4, 2023 — The Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA), a nonprofit organization working to improve the cybersecurity of the global digital ecosystem, today announced that the OT-ISAC is joining the alliance as a Contributing Ally partner.  As part of its mission to support the disruption of malicious cyber activity and to raise the level of cybersecurity across the digital ecosystem, CTA collaborates with a broad range of organizations. Our Contributing Allies program allows partners to have a broad, formalized, and ongoing relationship with CTA across various areas of mutual interest. These partnerships involve collaboration on cyber incidents and key cybersecurity topics.

“I am excited to have the OT-ISAC join CTA’s partnership program,” said Michael Daniel, President and CEO of the Cyber Threat Alliance.  “OT systems are increasingly targets for malicious cyber actors but do not yet have the same level of security that traditional business IT systems have.  We look forward to working with the OT-ISAC to increase the level of security in this part of the digital ecosystem.”

“The collaboration with CTA aims to emphasize the essential importance of building stronger partnerships and improving information sharing as key components in our joint cybersecurity initiatives,” said John Lee, Managing Director at OT-ISAC. “By combining our resources, expertise, and intelligence, we enhance our ability to foresee, confront, and neutralize an ever-expanding range of cyber threats.”
