Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) Standards Organization

Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity Posture

The ISAO Standards Organization website has moved. Please visit the newly launched ISAO Standards Organization website here.

The ISAO Standards Organization is a non-governmental organization established October 1, 2015, and led by the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with support from LMI and R-CISC.  Our mission is to improve the Nation’s cybersecurity posture by identifying standards for robust and effective information sharing related to cybersecurity risks/incidents and cybersecurity best practices.  We will work with existing information sharing organizations, owners and operators of critical infrastructure, relevant agencies, and other public and private sector stakeholders through a voluntary consensus standards development process to identify a common set of voluntary standards for the creation and functioning of ISAOs.

Through public, open-ended engagements, the ISAO Standards Organization will develop standards, guidelines and templates that align with the needs of industry groups and the public, leveraging the effective best practices and lessons learned developed by existing Information Sharing and Analysis Centers.
