Executive Order 13691 directed the Department of Homeland Security to enter into agreement with a non-governmental entity to serve as the ISAO Standards Organization. In collaboration with public and private sector entities, academia, owners and operators of critical infrastructure, and existing cyber threat information sharing organization, the ISAO Standards Organization is to develop a common set of voluntary standards for the formation and functioning of ISAOs. On October 1, 2015 the University of Texas at San Antonio was selected to fill this role with support from the Logistics Management Institute and the Retail – Cybersecurity Intelligence Sharing Center.

The goal is to inspire more information sharing of cyber threat indicators. The more organization take an active role in their cyber protection the more resilient the nation will become. for more information go to www.isao.org
