Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TYSONS, Va. - Oct 12, 2017 - Information Sharing is critical to any organization’s cybersecurity strategy because it is uniquely positioned to strengthen them to face cyber-attacks by leveraging resources, experience, and knowledge. Cybersecurity is front and center most days in the news, but as important as cybersecurity is, it’s the sharing of information related to cyber threats that is what’s valuable to organizations and businesses across the country. We find information sharing is a topic with wide bipartisan support.
