Alan Brill Writes for NATO Science for Peace and Security Series

Alan Brill, Senior Managing Director in the Cyber Risk practice of Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, wrote the chapter, "The Need for Public-Private Information Sharing in Cybersecurity" as part of the book Senior Leadership Roundtable on Military and Defense Aspects of Border Security in South East Europe, which presents papers delivered at the NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) event of the same name.

Alan's paper begins by tracing the itemization and sharing of threat information to ancient times. It then demonstrates how cybersecurity cannot be adequately addressed only by technology people and cannot be ignored because it is the core of warfare in the twenty-first century and makes it difficult to create “cyber borders.”

The paper also argues that cyber risk has greatly increased due to the Internet of Things (IoT), lack of sufficient security in new defense devices, and hackers. Recommendations are presented for developing a more robust cybersecurity architecture at the national and international levels which include various ways of sharing public-private information in this domain and incorporating a multitude of fields.

The book and the chapter are available on the publisher's website.
