The Cyber Security Bureau of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia has become a full member of the Multinational Malware Information Sharing Platform (MISP), which is a NATO-endorsed smart defence initiative, reports the Ministry of Defence.
MISP is an interactive platform for security incident investigators and malware analysts. One of the main benefits of joining the MISP is that organizations from different NATO-member or its partner states are able to observe the same cyber attacks against NATO-member countries and all of them together spend time on performing the same analytical work in order to eliminate the problem.
The main aim of the platform is to support NATO Computer Incident Capability Technical Centre (NCIRCTC) missions.
Starting from March 4, 2020, all information regarding cyber attacks against NATO-member states will be shared with the Cyber Security Bureau of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia, which is one of the key components of effective cyber security”, reads the official statement of the Ministry.
Georgia is the second non-member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) country after Finland to gain full access to the MISP.
