DHS to Hold Public Meetings on Voluntary Standards for Cyber Info Sharing & Analysis Organizations

1 min read

cybersecurityThe Department of Homeland Security will conduct a two-day public meeting in May in Anaheim, California, to tackle the draft voluntary standards on the operations of cybersecurity-focused information sharing and analysis organizations.

DHS and the ISAO Standards Organization will meet with standard working groups and their heads on May 18 to discuss the draft documents, the department said in a Federal Register notice posted April 15.

The scheduled May 19 meeting seeks to gather feedback from the general public on the proposed standards.

DHS teamed up with the ISAO Standards Organization through a cooperative agreement in compliance with President Barack Obama’s 2015 executive order that requires government agencies, private firms and nonprofit organizations to facilitate data sharing on cybersecurity risks.

The University of Texas at San Antonio leads the organization, which is also supported by the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center and the Logistics Management Institute.

The department and the ISAO Standards Organization plan to release for public comment the first set of standards in June and the final guidelines by September.
