Overview[edit | edit source]
The Information Sharing and Analysis Centers Council (ISAC Council) comprises fourteen ISACs and was formed in 2003 to work on common operational themes and issues for exchanging information intra-ISAC and inter-ISAC. The ISAC Council's mission is to advance the physical and cyber security of the critical infrastructures of North America by establishing and maintaining a framework for valuable interaction between and among the ISACs and with government.
The ISAC Council co-sponsors the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Congress along with PCIS and InfraGard. This annual event serves as a focal point for cross-sector information sharing and brings together representatives from most of the critical infrastructures along with officials from the Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement and state and local governments.
