VANCOUVER November 29th, 2023 – The Global Mining and Metals Information Sharing Analysis Center (MM-ISAC) and AttackIQ, the leading independent vendor of breach and attack simulation (BAS) solutions, today announced a new partnership to help organizations validate security controls in the mining and metals industry without the need for expensive and time-consuming manual testing.

In the face of escalating cyber threats targeting the mining and metals sectors, MM-ISAC’s collaboration with AttackIQ will empower its members to validate the effectiveness of their security controls using AttackIQ Flex, which provides an economical means of validating security controls without the need for expensive and time-consuming manual testing. MM-ISAC will combine its leading industry-specific threat intelligence with the adversary emulation capability provided by AttackIQ Flex.

“With many member companies looking towards modern technology to enhance, innovate, and automate the industry, a greater need for safely securing these essential systems is paramount to maintaining safe and uninterrupted operations,” said Rob Labbé, CISO-in-Residence, MM-ISAC’s. “The use of AttackIQ Flex will allow MM-ISAC members to assess their readiness to defend against the adversaries active in the industry.”

Regular testing is the cornerstone of an adaptive defense, yet many organizations lack the tools and staff to effectively carry out this crucial practice on a regular basis, leaving them vulnerable to evolving threats and potential breaches.
