The Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization will publish four initial voluntary guideline documents for information sharing and analysis related to cybersecurity risks, incidents and practices.
ISAO SO said Thursday it will publish the Introduction to ISAOs, Guidelines for Establishing an ISAO, Introduction to Information Sharing and U.S. Government Relations, Programs, and Services documents in response to a White House executive order that calls for agencies, private businesses and nonprofit organizations to exchange cyber data.
“The ISAO SO, supported by a dedicated cadre of volunteers, aims to grow the information sharing community and equip it with the tools needed to improve the cybersecurity posture of all communities of interest across the nation,” said Greg White, ISAO SO executive director.
“The publication of these documents represents the collaboration of over 160 experts from industry, government, and academia, combined with the input and feedback of the public.”
The University of Texas at San Antonio leads the ISAO SO in partnership with LMI and the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center to facilitate the implementation of PEO 13691.
ISAO SO will hold an online public meeting on Oct. 20 to discuss upcoming publications, a national information sharing conference for 2017 and a question and answer session with the organization’s leaders.
