The illegal war being waged against Ukraine can result in dreadful spillover cyber effects
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and RIGA, Latvia, May 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tortora Brayda Institute, a non-profit independent organization for multi-stakeholder partnerships in Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity and Cloud, today to announce its Task Force, (NAIC-ISAO) National Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Analysis Standards Organization's efforts towards escalating cybersecurity, heavily impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine.
NAIC-ISAO's Task Force Chair Michael Thiessmeier, a distinguished security expert with over two decades of experience in the global security, spent the last half year in Eastern Europe, working across borders to help build trust-based relationships with US allies and partners, both private and public, in the fight against modern cyberthreats. The in-person meetings showed a strong proof of commitment between the U.S and European Allies.
"Cyberspace is a so-called 'contested space' between nations. Cyber Diplomacy helps set global norms for conduct in cyberspace and ensures all relevant state and non-state actors participate together to solve joint challenges. The current war against Ukraine is one such challenge, but there are many others such as prosecuting cybercrime. Our participation in international working groups ensures that ISAO members have a voice in the formation process of these global norms, while also allowing us to give them insight into where things are heading to," said Michael Thiessmeier, NAIC-ISAO Chair and CEO, Allied Cyberpartners LLC.
As part of NAIC-ISAO' efforts, Mr. Thiessmeier forged relationships with the Latvian government, the American Chamber of Commerce Latvia, the 3 Seas Digital Initiative and attended important summits like NATO's International Conference on Cyber conflict, Riga Stratcom Dialogue and the Vilnius Security Forum.
"The National Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity ISAO provides a great benefit to its members by sharing best practices and threat intelligence with US industry also through its participation to the global dialog through NATO Stratcom Centre of Excellence," said Carlo Tortora Brayda di Belvedere, Founder and Executive Chairperson at Tortora Brayda Institute. "Right now with Cyber hostilities escalating, in the light of the Russian war in the Ukraine, we anticipate a massive increase in cyber threats to critical infrastructure across NATO member countries. Here, at the cross roads between artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, our organization serves a valuable role, I am grateful to Mr Thiessmeier and his team for their enlightened leadership at this delicate time."
