Government Programs and Services Available to Assist ISAOs v0.2 (SWG6)

Request For Comment

The request for comment period for this draft concluded on Friday, June 17, 2016. All comments were reviewed and adjudicated by working groups. Comments received after the June 17 deadline may be included in future adjudication and revision periods.

The purpose of this voluntary ISAO Standards Organization guide is to assist ISAOs, both new and existing, in identifying existing resources and services—primarily those provided by the government—that may be of use to their organization. Much of this guide is aligned with the five cybersecurity framework function areas. As such, it outlines resources and services available to help ISAOs identify, protect from, detect, respond to, and recover from cyber threats and incidents.

Although the first public comment period is now closed, we still welcome your input. While your comments may not be included in the next round of published drafts, they will be considered for future revisions.

GeneralThese comments were submitted by The InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (INCRMA), Regulatory & Policy Working Group, whose members hail from both government and industry. The InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (INCRMA) is an alliance with the FBI's Washington Field Office and individuals committed to protecting the nation's critical infrastructure. Our chapter has the same footprint as the FBI field office with which we are aligned - Washington, DC and northern Virginia. Our mission is to improve and extend information sharing between critical infrastructure stakeholders, in both the private and public sectors, with the government, particularly the FBI, to protect those infrastructure assets from physical and/or cyber attack. As a result of this exchange, timely information and intelligence is delivered, investigations are initiated and/or enhanced, vital economic and national security assets are protected, and lasting relationships are formed between law enforcement and infrastructure owners/operators.Accepted
110 & after RE: PSAsProtective Security Advisors (PSAs) are tremendous resources but no cybersecurity resources. If the ISAO is going to promote physical security and resilience support, then it needs to be addressed in other ISAO docs. If not, PSAs should not be listed here.Accepted
