FloridaSOAR is a nonprofit partnership between academic entities, governmental bodies and private industry for the sole purpose of fighting cyber crime.
This is achieved through establishing a neutral, trusted environment for generating and sharing actionable cyber threat intelligence by analyzing and correlating diverse empirical data feeds. To this end, FloridaSOAR will continue to work with its partners to design operational cyber security capabilities, which aim at promptly inferring, characterizing, reporting and remediating Internet-scale cyber threats.
