2019 is the 20th anniversary of the creation of the first Information Sharing & Analysis Center (ISAC). The early years were marked by a frustrating lack of relevant and actionable information from the government sector and little information shared between ISAC members. The Financial Services ISAC (FS-ISAC) broke down these barriers and developed an effective and trusted model that has been emulated by many other information sharing communities. Bill Nelson, CEO of the Global Resilience Federation and former CEO of FS-ISAC, will describe the foundation for this model which includes:
· Enhancing the trust model through adoption of the “Traffic Light Protocol” and secure anonymous submissions of shared information.
· Improving industry-wide incident response through effective “All Hazards Playbook” procedures that are tested through periodic and regular Situational Awareness Exercises before a real event of significance occurs.
· Working with the public sector to provide timely, accurate, relevant and actionable information sharing to/from government partners.
· Understanding the Evolution of Cyber Attacks and making available new tools to ensure vital infrastructures can identify and defend against the latest threats and vulnerabilities.
