TITAN - Threat Intelligence Tactical Analysis Network
Executive Sponsor: Haddon Bennett, CISO
Project Team: Jason Jones – VP Cyber Threat and Response, John Fellers – Cyber Threat Hunter, Robert Landry - InfoSec Engineer, Russ Lieneman- InfoSec Engineer, and Craig Ray- InfoSec Analyst
Location: Nashville, TN
Change Healthcare’s TITAN is a threat intelligence and analysis network which enables pro-active, threat-based defense, threat analysis, identification, and tracking. TITAN pulls threat intelligence from a variety of sources, stores incident data in a centralized repository, and enables research and analysis to help determine if seemingly isolated incidents are components of advanced persistent threats. When new threats are identified, TITAN disseminates this information to Change Healthcare’s internal security tools automatically. TITAN provides the context between threat intelligence and security incidents identified and logged to our SIEM. TITAN publishes threats identified internally to NH-ISAC, thus helping other member organizations consume targeted threat intelligence.

Location: Atlanta, GA
DR Next supports a 5 year Business Continuity Program (BCP) Renovation roadmap addressing key deficiencies in response to a 2011 Federal MRA. The program was renovated to effectively comply with required supervisory guidance and provide assurance of essential recovery capabilities. It also heightens the recovery preparedness and operational excellence through broader testing, infrastructure flexibility, and administration optimization. DR Next key elements, including end-to-end transactional testing capabilities, consolidation of standards, application level recovery, and extended accessibility to DR environments were delivered. The bank’s overall risk management posture significantly improved resulting in closure of the 2011 MRA following an August 2015 Federal ECM audit.
