About CTA

OUR PRINCIPLES

CTA intelligence sharing is grounded in 5 guiding principles:

  • FOR THE GREATER GOOD

    We protect customers, strengthen critical infrastructure, and defend the digital ecosystem.

  • TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

    We prevent, identify, and disrupt malicious activity by rapidly sharing timely, actionable intelligence.

  • CONTEXT RULES

    We reward context sharing to identify an indicator and provide useful information about it.

  • RADICAL TRANSPARENCY

    We attribute intelligence to the member who submits it, but anonymize any and all victim and sensitive data.

  • YOU MUST GIVE TO RECEIVE

    We require all members to share a minimum amount of intelligence with the alliance to prevent the free-rider problem.

OUR AREAS OF FOCUS

In addition to our topic-specific working groups that address ad hoc challenges or opportunities, CTA maintains several standing committees:

  • ALGORITHM & INTELLIGENCE

    Oversees the sharing algorithm and platform to incentivize valuable sharing.

  • COMMUNICATIONS

  • PUBLIC POLICY & STANDARDS

  • FINANCE & AUDIT

  • SECURITY & OPERATIONS
