Center for Threat-Informed Defense:

Diverse Participants for Greater Impact

The Center for Threat-Informed Defense brings together the most sophisticated cybersecurity teams from around the world for one cause and one purpose … to change the game on the adversary in threat-informed defense. Our roster of Center Participants – Founders, Partners, Sponsors, and Non-Profit Participants – is intentionally diverse to enable global and cross-sector impact. These organizations bring thought leadership and commitment to the Center’s mission.


These Founding Participants are the keystone of the Center. They partnered to establish the Center and created a whole new approach to collaborative R&D in the public interest. Their leadership, strong commitment to the Center’s mission, and determination to create a level playing field for all cyber defenders is critical to the Center’s success.

CTA is proud to be a founding member of the Center for Threat-Informed Defense. While we know that certain actions can improve our collective cybersecurity, there are still problems that require research and development to get to the right answer. Since many current practices are not based on robust, empirical findings, the Center’s focused R&D efforts will help the global community address the most pressing problems.
