MS-ISAC expands member services to include Deloitte’s cyber portal

State, local, tribal and territorial governments that are members of the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) now have free access to Deloitte’s Cyber Detect and Respond Portal, a secure online platform that provides cyber threat intelligence.

The portal delivers in-depth information, analysis and recommendations from Deloitte’s worldwide network of cyber threat analysts as well as cyber threat bulletins from the Department of Homeland Security, giving members both government and private sector perspectives on cyber threats.

Network defenders can map known threat actors’ tactics, techniques and procedures to the MITRE ATT&CK framework to help them focus threat identification and hunting on behaviors and artifacts that may indicate a cyberattack. The portal allows users to filter threat information by categories and keywords so they can focus on the threats most relevant to their organization.

“MS-ISAC works to help improve the overall cybersecurity posture of U.S. State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial governments through focused cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery,” MS-ISAC Chair Mike Aliperti said. “Adding Deloitte’s Cyber Detect and Respond Portal to our member services portfolio will provide our more than 10,000 members nationwide with enhanced capability to identify and understand the potential cyber threats they encounter when providing essential citizen services.”

Created in 2004, MS-ISAC enrollment recently surpassed 10,000 members, chief information security officers and equivalent roles within all 50 states, five U.S. territories, the District of Columbia, over 250 individual state departments, as well as thousands of local governments and tribal nations.
