The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) announced it has reached another key milestone and expanded the capabilities of its Retail Information Sharing Analysis Center (Retail ISAC) with the establishment of an intelligence sharing portal managed by the FS-ISAC.
R-CISC Intelligence Sharing Portal is the next phase in the continued development of the R-CISC that enhances the capabilities retailers currently use to share vital cybersecurity intelligence information within the community, and receive intelligence from key partners, government agencies, and law enforcement.
"The formalization of the sharing portal supported by the FS-ISAC is an important step in the evolution of retail cyber threat information sharing," said R-CISC Executive Director Brian Engle. "The R-CISC portal will substantially increase the efficacy of the information sharing already underway by contextualizing, prioritizing and cataloging the information shared between retailers, other industries and law enforcement."
The launch of the Intelligence Sharing Portal is one of several tools that the R-CISC is developing to serve the industry. In addition to enabling valuable cyber threat information sharing, the R-CISC continues to develop robust education and research offerings as well.
"FS-ISAC is proud to support R-CISC as it delivers on its core mission of information sharing and enabling retail organizations around the world improve their cyber security posture and resilience," says Bill Nelson, FS-ISAC President & CEO. "FS-ISAC continually looks to innovate how information is shared, analyzed and disseminated. We believe there is tremendous potential both for intra-sector and cross-sector sharing and we look forward to sharing our expertise to help enable these new ways of collaborating."
The relationship with FS-ISAC also paves the way for continued advancements, including use of Soltra Edge, the automated threat indicator sharing platform and other technologies and services.
