This special interest group aims to improve civil society organization’s access to threat intelligence, and help coordinate mitigation efforts to civil society organizations targeted by threat actors where possible. Commercial cyber threat intelligence reporting neglects threats to civil society, and these organizations cannot afford private feeds or customized protection products. Hence, civil society organizations lack information on the threats they face, yet they belong to the most vulnerable actors online. To improve that situation, this special interest group aims to discuss challenges, find possible workarounds and facilitate contact between civil society organizations in need of assistance and threat intelligence researchers who are able to help. Robust information sharing rules and membership rules protect the interests and needs of our members.
