Re: Cybersec information sharing
Information sharing will come from vendors that companies have relationships with but also joining various groups will help to get valuable information to the people who can use it. One such group is  "Infragrad" (https://www.infragard.org), joint partnership between FBI and companies.

Re: Cybersec information sharing
The fault for a lack of sharing, IMO, lies squarely with security vendors' marketing teams that see knowledge of a threat as a competitive advantage. The practioners I know would love to be able to get together with peers in a secure way periodically to discuss what they see happening in the wild. It's the suits gumming up the works.
