TAG Registers With Federal NGO That Works On Cybersecurity Defense

As state-sponsored hacking issues, ad fraud, and cybercrime take on heightened significance, the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) on Thursday said it’s registered with the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) Standards Organization, a non-governmental body created by Congress to bolster the nation’s cybersecurity defense through information-sharing. 

TAG, which said it’s the first ISAO in the digital ad industry to register with the Standards Organization, will share information with industry stakeholders about new and emerging cyber-threats, incidents, and best practices, particularly those related to ad-related malware, ad-supported piracy, and ad fraud on behalf of the industry.

“Information-sharing is the mortar that bonds the individual efforts of hundreds of companies into a common barrier against the distribution of malware, viruses, and threats,” stated Mike Zaneis, CEO of TAG.

To date, TAG has worked closely with digital ad companies to create a Malware Threat Sharing Hub, a Data Center IP List of fraud threats, and a compliance officer network to enable the sharing of near-real time intelligence on new and emerging threats with other companies and law enforcement agencies.



TAG has also worked closely on its anti-malware, anti-piracy, and anti-fraud efforts with federal law enforcement agencies including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center.
