CISA’s Incident Reporting Rulemaking: Impacts on Critical Infrastructure

The Communications ISAC (Information Sharing and Analysis Center) is an organization sponsored by CISA (the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency – part of the Department of Homeland Security). One of its basic purposes is to “collect, analyze and disseminate actionable threat information to their members and provide members with tools to mitigate risks and enhance resiliency”. All network service providers are eligible to join (no cost).

The Communications Sector Coordinating Council “works with government partners to protect the nation’s communications critical infrastructure and key resources and to ensure that communications networks and systems are secure, resilient, and rapidly restored after a natural or man-made disaster. The CSCC is industry-organized, industry-run, and industry-governed, and meets regularly to review industry and government actions on critical infrastructure protection priorities and cross sector issues”.  There is no cost to join and the CSCC has resources specifically for SMB members (The Small and Mid-size Business working committee specifically) where all can participate and learn of resources available to all.
