The ONUG Collaborative CSNF Project Team developed the Cloud Security Notification Framework, which maps security-related notification messages from multiple cloud providers into a common format, helping to streamline workflows for security analysts responding to multicloud security incidents. In 2023, CSNF was included in Splunkbase as a Technology Add-On.

How the ONUG Collaborative Works

The Collaborative focuses on specific use cases that present critical challenges for enterprise technology adopters. Use cases of concern are identified by the ONUG Collaborative Steering Committee, the ONUG Board or ONUG Community members.

ONUG Collaborative Project Teams help technology adopters overcome critical use case challenges by generating deliverables focused on actionable outcomes. These outcomes equip enterprise IT professionals with valuable know-how around the tools, technologies and techniques that can be put into practice within their organizations.
