OASIS is one of the most respected member-driven standards bodies in the world, OASIS offers projects – including open source projects – a path to standardization and de jure approval for reference in international policy and procurement. OASIS has a broad technical agenda encompassing cybersecurity, blockchain, privacy, cryptography, cloud computing and IoT – any initiative for developing code, APIs, specifications or reference implementations can find a home at OASIS.

November Cybersecurity and Information Environment Webinar

The November Cybersecurity and Information Environment webinar is pleased to host the Cyber Resilience Institute’s (CRI) Doug DePeppe and Jane Ginn on November 17th at 3PM MST.

The CRI team will discuss the use of parallel hunting techniques – using social media and technical telemetry – to reveal disinformation and misinformation sources. Link analysis to conduct deep source checking helps analysts evaluate and connect influencers and trending hashtags to their sources, which is especially critical to reveal adversary nation-state influence operations, such as election interference.

Those interested will be able to join a Call to Action, facilitated by the National Cybersecurity Center (NCC), in which we explore opportunities to collaboratively increase cyber resilience.
