I’m pleased to announce that my colleague, Trey Darley has been appointed to the Technical Advisory Board (TAB) for the international standards group, OASIS.

Trey is the Director of Standards Development here at New Context, and his standards expertise has been super-influential to the work we’ve been doing with cyber threat intelligence platforms for critical infrastructure. His contributions and leadership to the OASIS Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Technical Committee have also been instrumental in the maturation of STIX and TAXII.

At New Context, we’ve been working hard to engage our customers to adopt standards and create infrastructure around referenceable architectures. This past October, our CEO, Daniel Riedel, was invited to testify before the U.S. Senate, where he shared the importance of adopting cyber threat intelligence standards in our critical infrastructure networks.

In addition to OASIS, Trey is also heavily involved with FIRST. Recently, he co-authored an article with Thomas Schreck, chairman of FIRST, which breaks-down how sharing cyber threat intelligence helps to protect your infrastructure as well as your colleagues. Earlier this year, Trey developed the first version of the STIX Patterning quick reference guide. I often run into people at conferences who thank me for the work that Trey puts into our standards organizations. This is also true of the management at OASIS.

Chet Ensign, Director of Standards Development for OASIS said, “Trey was chosen [for the TAB], not only for his considerable technical knowledge, but also because he is so widely respected in the community. In his work as a co-chair of the OASIS Cyber Threat Intelligence Technical Committee, Trey has proven adept at leading people with differing, sometimes competitive, positions to productive consensus. STIX, TAXII, and OpenC2 have gained tremendously from Trey’s contributions and diplomacy skills.”
