ICS-ISAC Merges With Webster University

The Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC) announced this week that it would merge with Webster University’s Cyberspace Research Institute (CRI). 

The Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC) announced this week that it would merge with Webster University’s Cyberspace Research Institute (CRI). 

The non-profit ICS-ISAC is a knowledge sharing center established to help facilities develop situational awareness in support of local, national and international security.

The ICS-ISAC creates and maintains the Situational Awareness Reference Architecture (SARA) to foster knowledge sharing capabilities. SARA is a compilation of industry standards, technical practices and processes designed to enable situational awareness both at industrial facilities as well as across shared infrastructure.

Founded in 1915, Webster is a private non-profit university with almost 20,000 students studying at campus locations in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa and in a learning environment online.

SecurityWeek has established a strategic alliance with ICS-ISAC for the SecurityWeek 2015 ICS Cyber Security Conference, being held in Atlanta from Oct. 26-29.

Now in its 13th year, the conference is the foremost and longest-running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sectors. The conference caters to the energy, water, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. Since 2002, the conference has attracted a continually rising interest as both the stakes of critical infrastructure protection and the distinctiveness of securing ICSs become increasingly apparent.
