Through a new partnership, the 10,000-plus government members in the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) will have free access to a cyber threat intelligence portal from Deloitte.

Deloitte, a global consultancy that often participates in large government IT projects in state and local governments across the U.S., uses its Cyber Detect and Respond Portal as an information sharing hub. The portal offers intelligence on cyber threats, along with analysis and recommendations. Just as hackers share exploits, the portal shares tactics and procedures on the specific activities of bad actors.

MS-ISAC members, which include all 50 states, thousands of local agencies and a number of tribal and territorial governments, will have free access to that now. In recent years, cyberattacks on government — especially local governments, which often lack the cybersecurity resources of larger jurisdictions — have become relentless.

“Combatting cyber threats to U.S. state, local, tribal and territorial governments demands timely threat intelligence, as well as robust, cross-industry information-sharing,” said Srini Subramanian, a state local government advisory leader at Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory, in a press release. “We are offering Deloitte’s Cyber Detect and Respond Portal to MS-ISAC members to help under-resourced teams focus on critical cyber threat activity and encourage more information sharing about vulnerabilities so government agencies can be better informed and prepared for those threats.”

The information in the portal also includes bulletins from the Department of Homeland Security.

Aside from threat intelligence, MS-ISAC also provides a number of security tools to government agencies, such as the Albert network monitoring service.
