Understand threat events you are seeing in-house

Get your own house in order: Start by understanding the events within your four walls and how they correlate. You can't begin to share information with others until you have an understanding of what's going on inside your own organization. There are many tools out there today that can give you this picture of your event data. Some vendors in this space include TruStar Technology, which specializes in aggregating threat intelligence to share with other verticals and regional geographies, and threat intel providers Anomali and ThreatConnect.

You guys should seriously check out Perch. They do everything this article talks about. They actually make all the intel from my ISAC useful and I think they're still doing free PoCs too. https://www.perchsecurity.com

Sharing Security Info
I am a believer that a radical new cybersecurity architecture is needed and the exponential rise over many years in breaches shows this. Sharing info on these events, a suggested. is fine but it  is like people telling each other how wet they are in the rain when the solution is a (new) umbrella.
