Telco Security Alliance members AT&T, Singtel and Telefonica have agreed to share threat information with each other as part of cybersecurity efforts.

All three companies intend to exchange data on cyber attacks, indicators of compromise and malware campaigns in order to track down the threats' origins using AT&T's Alien Labs Open Threat Exchange system, Telefonica said Tuesday.

"This relationship supports the global fight against cybercrime," said Jaime Blasco, assistant vice president of product development for AT&T's cybersecurity business.

"This initiative already proved valuable to AT&T's visibility into current threats, and as we continue to work together, our focus is on utilizing this relationship to deliver better threat intelligence to our customers," Blasco added.

The data sharing initiative could extend to the alliance's other members.

Etisalat and SoftBank also helped establish the group to help government and enterprise organizations avoid cyber attacks and gain insights into the threat landscape.
