A group of 18 tech and cyber companies said Wednesday they are building a common data standard for sharing cybersecurity information. They aim to fix a problem for corporate security chiefs who say that cyber products often don’t integrate, making it hard to fully assess hacking threats.
Amazon. com Inc.’s AWS cloud business, cybersecurity company Splunk Inc. and International Business Machines Corp.’s security unit, among others, launched the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework, or OCSF, Wednesday at the Black Hat USA cybersecurity conference in Las Vegas.
The OCSF standard and documentation will be on the GitHub open-source repository.
