First Top-Level Domain ISAC goes live - sharing threat intelligence and enhancing cybersecurity capabilities across Europe
With the launch of its website https://www.tld-isac.eu, the work of the first European top-level domain Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EUR TLD ISAC) has officially kicked off. The European TLD ISAC aims to strengthen cybersecurity capabilities and resilience and fosters collaboration among top-level domain operators across Europe.
As cyber threats continue to evolve and pose challenges to the digital landscape, proactive cybersecurity measures become ever more critical. The website serves as a platform for sharing insights and good practices. It is the central point of contact and information for anyone interested in the subject or in joining forces to tackle cyber threats.
Peter Janssen, General Manager at EURid, said: “As a founding member of the European TLD ISAC, EURid is proud to play a vital role in advancing cybersecurity. Our dedication to safeguarding the .eu namespace and promoting a secure online environment underscores our commitment to protecting our digital community. Together with our peers in the European Top Level Domain Community, we are shaping a safer and more resilient European cyberspace, setting a benchmark for the world to follow.”
Kristof Tuyteleers, CISO at DNS Belgium and Chair of the TLD ISAC Working Group, said: “The TLD ISAC Working Group will allow us to make use of the shared knowledge of all members across Europe to further improve our cybersecurity and response to emerging cyber threats. The website is an important facilitator. It is also our calling card for interested stakeholders to see what the ISAC has to offer and how important our joint contribution is to the global security of the domain name space."
The website will feature a resource library with content drafted by experts of the TLD ISAC Working Group.
The TLD ISAC is supported by CENTR, the association of European country code top-level domain (ccTLD) registries. Strategic oversight and impetus come from the Steering Committee consisting of the founding members of the TLD ISAC. The TLD ISAC will be welcoming collaboration partners at a later stage, yet interested parties are invited to contact the Steering Committee and Working Group Chairs.
