The rapid growth of cyber threats in this period has made the collaborative sharing of cyber threat intelligence essential to protecting national digital landscapes. Like many other nations, Ghana must contend with the difficulty of defending its data assets and vital infrastructure against a wide range of cyber threats. This research presents a novel methodology for the creation of a Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing Platform (CyberTIP), designed for Ghana in response to this situation of growing threat.
The methodology aims to provide a centralized platform that promotes proactive cooperation between public and private sectors as well as key infrastructure sectors. Through the process of gathering, combining, standardizing, and automated examination of cyber threat information from many sources, this platform aims to provide a comprehensive view of the local threat landscape. The automated system is enhanced by human analysis, which provides context awareness and knowledge. Real-time threat identification, sharing, and incident response coordination are facilitated by this technique. This will help researchers get timely information on the state of cybersecurity in the country.
This platform is positioned to improve Ghana's overall cybersecurity readiness with a clear framework for exchanging threat intelligence. The platform enables enterprises to effectively respond to new threats while safeguarding sensitive data and vital systems by offering pertinent, industry-specific threat intelligence. The approach encourages cooperation with foreign partners, improving response skills and understanding of global threats.
The anticipated results of this study include an enhanced cybersecurity posture for Ghana, which includes better incident response, less impact from cyber threats, and increased situational awareness. Furthermore, the creation of the Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing Platform paves the way for an international, proactive, and cooperative approach to cybersecurity. This methodology protects Ghana's digital future in an increasingly linked world by doing more than just evaluating the country's cybersecurity environment. It also provides the country with a proactive and cooperative cyber defense strategy.
