DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION: ANTITRUST POLICY STATEMENT ON SHARING OF CYBERSECURITY INFORMATION
Cyber threats are becoming increasingly more common, more sophisticated, and more dangerous. One way that private entities may defend against cyber attacks is by sharing technical cyber threat information - such as threat signatures, indicators, and alerts - with each other. Today, much of this sharing is taking place. Some private entities may, however, be hesitant to share cyber threat information with others, especially competitors, because they believe such sharing may raise antitrust issues.
