About Public Safety ISAO
The Public Safety ISAO is to provide public private collaborative cyber data and service solutions which address public safety needs by partnering widely with private sector stakeholders to deliver critical cyber capabilities at little or no cost to public safety agencies and organizations. Strategic initiatives to accomplish this include:
Implementation of the Global Accredited Registry and Registrar Data Access Network (GARDANET); Ensuring Public Safety unfettered access to Whois data post GDPR implementation.
Development of a Cyber COMPSTAT Framework for Information Sharing which is driven by Public Safety domain intelligence needs versus the all too often "firehose approach."
Creation of a Digital Evidence Technical and Legal Knowledge Sharing Environment permitting Public Safety to benefit from common awareness through global collaboration.

ISAOs, Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations, are 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 and guidelines for the creation and functioning of ISAOs. These standards address, but are not limited to, contractual agreements, business processes, operating procedures, technical specifications, and privacy protections. ISAOs advise on best practices and lessons learned from existing Information Sharing and Analysis Centers and other information sharing organizations.
The establishment of ISAOs allows communities of interest to share cyber threat information with each other on a voluntary basis, resulting in an effective ISAO Ecosystem. ISAOs may also, if they choose, participate in existing federal cybersecurity information sharing programs, providing access to near-real-time cyber threat indicators. The goal is to create deeper and broader networks of information sharing nationally that foster the development and adoption of automated mechanisms for the sharing of information to elevate the security of the Nation.
