Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) and Shape Security Announce Strategic Partnership

Shape Security will host a featured webinar in the R-CISC’s recently announced Cyber Thursday series


Washington, DC – The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) and Shape Security will kick off a strategic partnership on Thursday, February 15, with a webinar aimed at helping retailers protect themselves from threats associated with seasonal promotions, limited-time offers, and other special events.


Hosted by Shape Security, a pioneering firm focused on eliminating fraud through collective defense, the webinar will describe and analyze the most interesting retail attacks Shape has deflected. The new partnership between R-CISC and Shape Security will develop educational content and technical capabilities for R-CISC member companies.


“Many R-CISC members already participate in Shape’s collective defense network for retailers, which automatically inoculates them against attacks other members experience. As a result, these members have massively reduced credential stuffing and other forms of online fraud,” said Sumit Agarwal, COO of Shape Security.


“The R-CISC and Shape Security’s missions are aligned in the fight against cyber attackers. Our strategic partnership is focused on breaking down barriers to information sharing and mitigating cyber threats, educating on business risk, and increasing our collective defenses against cyber threats,” said Suzie Squier, Executive Director of the R-CISC. 


Shape Security, an Associate Member of the R-CISC, protects more than 15 percent of Fortune 500 B2C enterprises against fraud on their web and mobile applications. It is committed to understanding industry challenges and supporting retail members through the R-CISC’s mission of advancing the collective capabilities of cybersecurity professionals in retail.


February 15 will be the first R-CISC Cyber Thursday of 2018, and include the following webinar with Shape Security:
