In October 2018, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued an alert warning of advanced persistent threat activity exploiting TSPs. According to DHS, threat actors are exploiting the trusted relationship between TSPs and their customers to creep unnoticed into customers’ networks.
Because of this emerging threat, the TSP-ISAO was formed and strives to create a secure infrastructure within the TSP industry, to set the standard for TSPs in the services and products they provide to their clients as well as the people, processes and tools they themselves employ, and to provide the tools, education and resources to advance these companies to excellence.
The TSP-ISAO will advance the cybersecurity resiliency of the global TSP industry by providing access to proactive threat intelligence, coordinate response, best practices evangelism, and support for research, training and education.
