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.
As top tier participants, Research Partners contribute significant resources to the Center’s R&D program and, indeed, the future direction of threat-informed defense. These organizations have taken a hands-on approach to changing the game on the adversary and improving the state of the art and the state of the practice in threat-informed defense.
Research Sponsors make up the largest segment of the Center’s membership and are the backbone of our work. The expertise, staff, and resources Research Sponsors bring to the table is instrumental to advancing the Center’s research program in the public interest.
Non-Profit Participants are the grass roots of the Center for Threat-Informed Defense. Working hand-in-hand, Non-Profit Participants are advocates for the cyber defender and are instrumental to expanding the reach of our work.
