 EE-ISAC Insights

ISAC stands for Information Sharing & Analysis Centre. ISACs are public-private partnerships in which participants exchange experiences and information about incidents and attacks within their own organization in order to protect the industry as a whole.

ISACs create a network of trust. Participants feel no legal or social hesitations to share sensitive but key information in order to learn from each other and create awareness networks. How does an ISAC create trust?

ISACs creates means for the sharing of information through Human-to-Human (H2H) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) methods.
