WASHINGTON – Dec. 8, 2016 – EntSun — The International Association of Certified ISAOs (IACI) has been named an honoree of the 2017 CS050 Award from IDG’s CSO.  This prestigious honor is bestowed upon a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security projects/initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies.

In today’s active cyber ecosystem, current “continuous monitoring’ practices represent only one aspect of understanding the multiple layers that must be identified as possible risks to an organization. The best proactive defense is the identification of risks derived from the active real-time discovery and reporting (information sharing) of attack categories by individuals working with multiple enterprise functions that enable and sustain uninterrupted processes across systems, assets and networks.  An organization’s approach in developing a culture of cybersecurity represents an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO).  The value of enterprise Information Sharing among stakeholders (internal and external) is greatly enhanced by information exchange of cyber threat intelligence in real-time and operationalizing cyber resilience best practices within and across-sectors globally.

IACI – Adding a New Layer of Cybersecurity.  To enable, sustain and provide access to the benefits provided by a coordinated and collaborative Global Cyber Resilience Ecosystem, leveraging trusted public- and private sector assets and resources, the International Association of Certified ISAOs (IACI), a non-profit organization, was formed in 2016, breaking down long-standing barriers and silos to hasten Information Sharing & Analysis Organizations (ISAOs) implementation, and provide governance (IACI Governance Framework), management, technical, operations, and certification support.
