WHAT IS AN ISAO?
CalCISO is an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization, or ISAO. An ISAO is a group created to gather, analyze, and disseminate cyber threat information. ISAOs offer a more flexible approach to self-organized information sharing activities amongst communities of interest, such as businesses in the same region, across many sectors of the economy, or those engaged in sectors that may touch upon a critical infrastructure sector but serve other functions as well.
ISAOs were defined in President Obama’s Executive Order 13691 in February 2015, although some ISAOs (including CalCISO) existed prior to this formal recognition.
WHAT IS AN ISAC?
Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) help critical infrastructure owners and operators protect their facilities, personnel and customers from cyber and physical security threats and other hazards. A common definition of an ISAC was introduced in Presidential Decision Directive-63 (PDD-63) in May 1998. Since that time, the federal government has asked sector-specific organizations to provide a forum for these organizations to facilitate the sharing of threat intelligence among their sector members.
