Web intelligence company Cobwebs Technologies announced Thursday that it has officially joined the US-based Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI) as an operational sponsor and will contribute to the organization's operational activity with a combined cyber threat intelligence report.

Cobwebs will be enhancing the report with its WEBINT capabilities to extract and analyze big data from the publicly accessible surface, deep and dark web as well as online social networks and chatter for actionable insights, the company said. 

The CSFI is a non-profit organization aimed at providing cyber warfare awareness, guidance, and security solutions. The US-based initiative is said to comprise a community of nearly 137,000 cybersecurity and cyber warfare professionals from the government, military, private sector, and academia.

The Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI) is honored to have Cobwebs as an Operational Sponsor in support of a more assertive American national security in cyberspace. Cobwebs brings unparalleled capabilities to assist CSFI's Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) reporting efforts." said Paul de Souza, founder of CSFI.

Cobwebs is a provider of solutions tailored to the operational needs of national security agencies and the private sector.

The AI-powered WEBINT platform of Cobwebs uses smart ML and NL algorithms to capture and analyze relevant web data from all layers of the internet, social media networks and platforms, and chatter, providing indicators of compromise (IOCs), analyses of e.g., chatter, and other actionable insights, according to the company.

"We are proud to have been selected as an Operational Sponsor, which is one of the ways that we will be supporting the mission of CSFI to protect the national security of the USA and its allies," said Udi Levy, CEO of Cobwebs. "As Cobwebs, we will be contributing to CSFI's operational activity with a combined cyber threat intelligence report by making data relevant for tactical purposes."
