Integrate Once, Reuse Everywhere: IBM Security and the Open Cybersecurity Alliance

In late 2019, IBM joined forces with 17 other cybersecurity vendors - including McAfee, Crowdstrike and others - to form the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) to promote open and interoperable cybersecurity. Recognizing that most companies have too many cybersecurity tools to manage, too much data in too many places, and not enough skilled security professionals, OCA members subscribe to the mantra "Integrate once, reuse everywhere" to enable security teams to focus on solving security issues rather than getting tools to work together. Now up to 27 members, the OCA is becoming a powerful force in the cybersecurity industry. 

Chris Bontempo leads Marketing and Offerings for IBM Security in North America and will discuss how the OCA members are working together and contributing foundational technologies under the open-source Apache 2.0 license, to enable security solutions to communicate with each other over a standard fabric during the entire threat management life cycle. Chris will also demonstrate how IBM Security is implementing foundational open-source OCA technologies like STIX-Shifter, OpenDXL and OpenC2 in its new open security platform, the IBM Cloud Pak for Security, to help clients transform threat hunting and detection, security analytics, operations and response and beyond.
