The Threat Intel Coalition is a Special Interest Group (SIG) at the Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) that assists civil society in detecting and defending against targeted digital threats. Civil society organizations often lack information about the threats they face and the resources needed to prevent and mitigate intrusions. We aim to improve that situation and provide help in two ways. First, we link up civil society organizations facing a targeted threat to researchers at threat intelligence providers who provide assistance in a trusted and confidential setting. We have strong information sharing rules in place to protect the privacy of members and ensure civil society remains in control of who knows what about them. Second, we organize free training sessions and shared resources to support capacity building. Our members include researchers at all leading threat intelligence providers, civil society from around the world and academic experts. Membership is open to all civil society organizations and researchers willing to contribute.
