    Dubai FSA to Launch Cyber Threat Intelligence Platform

    December 29, 2019

    Dubai FSA is launching a Cyber Threat Intelligence platform to help firms in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) to implement appropriate safeguards to mitigate cyber risks. The platform is the first regulator-led cyber threat intelligence platform in the region and will be operated and managed in coordination with Help AG. The information shared on the platform is intended to assist businesses in the DIFC to detect and prevent cyber-attacks. Dubai FSA will host a launch event, during which the platform is scheduled to go live, in January 2020.

    The platform is a major milestone in proactive mitigation of cyber risk and will benefit the broader DIFC community by creating an ecosystem for information-sharing and enriched cyber threat intelligence to help detect and mitigate cyber risks. The platform provides cyber threat intelligence, not only to Dubai FSA but to the entire DIFC, creating a cyber-intelligence community and ecosystem accessible to all DIFC businesses, regardless of size or ability, with the potential to include the wider business community. The platform is a result of ongoing cooperation and collaboration with the Dubai Electronic Security Centre, the National Computer Emergency Response Team, and the Computer Incident Response Center Luxembourg. Leading international experts, including Kaspersky, Palo Alto Networks, Cofense, and Recorded Future are also participating in this initiative and contributing to the platform.
