Major Cybersecurity Companies Create New Open-Source Consortium To Share Key Data

Black Hat USA 2022 started off with a bang Wednesday with a group of major cybersecurity companies unveiling the formation of a new open-source consortium to share key data and with DNSFilter separately saying it’s acquiring Guardian, a firewall and VPN platform.

The announcement by a group of cybersecurity companies—including Splunk, Amazon Web Services, Cloudflare, CrowdStrike, Palo Alto Networks, Okta, Trend Micro, Tanium and Zscaler, among others—revealed the launch of a new consortium called the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF).

The goal: to better share product-normalizing data in order to improve cybersecurity in general. All members of the cybersecurity community are invited to utilize and contribute to the OCSF.

In the companies’ joint press release, the OCSF is referred to as an “open standard that can be adopted in any environment, application or solution provider and fits with existing security standards and processes.”

The initiative is described as a continuation of Paul Agbabian’s Integrated Cyber Defense (ICD) Schema work done at Symantec, a division of Broadcom. Agbabian is now a top executive at Splunk.
