Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense (IACD)

Our Contribution

APL conceptualized, prototyped, and published a framework enabling the integration and automation of diverse cybersecurity solutions to dramatically increase the speed and scale of cyber defense. Our contributions include development of reference architectures and implementations adoptable by commercial companies; creation of IACD playbooks enabling business-level management of cyber-defense technology solutions; and establishment of Integrated Cyber, a multiday, multicommunity forum for the advancement of automation in cybersecurity. In fall 2017, the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) partnered with APL to operationalize IACD in the financial sector. APL will serve as a trusted technical advisor to multiple financial institutions and the FS-ISAC in the adoption and expansion of IACD services.
