Since spies tend to be equal opportunity hackers, the UK is forging an anti-cyber threat center that'll let spook agencies like GCHQ and MI5 share intelligence with police and businesses. It started last year as a pilot program called "Project Auburn," and will now be formally known as CISP (the Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership). So far, 160 firms have joined the center, which hopes to share technical information, attack vectors and prevention methods. The UK government said it was necessary to bring industry into the picture since they're "by far the biggest victims in terms of espionage and intellectual property theft, with losses to the UK economy running into the billions of pounds annually." Some likely needn't check the mail too closely for an RSVP, however.
