December 16, 2021 – The National Council of ISACs (NCI), a coordinating body of 27 Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) designed to maximize the flow of information across private sector critical infrastructure and with government, announced the results of its recently held annual elections.
The NCI membership re-elected Denise Anderson of the Health ISAC as Chair, Josh Poster of the Automotive ISAC as Vice Chair, and Joe Viens of the Communications ISAC as Secretary.
“Josh, Joe and I are very honored to be elected again as officers of the NCI and to serve this great organization that has grown and thrived for almost two decades,” says Denise Anderson. “We look forward to working with the members of NCI and our partners in 2022, continuing the success and growth of our wonderful and vital community.”
Sector-based Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) collaborate and coordinate with each other via the National Council of ISACs (NCI). Formed in 2003, the NCI today is comprised of organizations designated by their sectors as their information sharing and operational arms.
The NCI is a true cross-sector partnership, providing a forum for sharing cyber and physical threats and mitigation strategies among ISACs and with government and private sector partners during both steady-state conditions and incidents requiring cross-sector response. Sharing and coordination is accomplished through daily and weekly calls between ISAC operations centers, daily reports, requests-for-information, monthly meetings, exercises, and other activities as situations require. The NCI also organizes its own drills and exercises and participates in national exercises. For more information, visit https://www.nationalisacs.org/.
