Navigating the Information Sharing Ecosystem

October 31 – November 1, 2017 – Walter E. Washington D.C. Convention Center

Join us for the inaugural International Information Sharing Conference hosted by the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO), with participation from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

This two-day event, a first of its kind, will convene practitioners from small businesses to multi-national corporations and from information sharing newcomers to well-established cybersecurity organizations. This unique conference will go beyond discussing current cyber information sharing topics and will provide opportunities to see competing approaches and innovations in platforms and services. The information sharing ecosystem is strong when government and industry collaborate.

Attendees will gain the knowledge needed to successfully navigate the ecosystem through networking events, educational seminars, keynote addresses from industry, senior government and international thought leaders, technology demonstrations, and an exhibition hall. Conference sessions and panels will focus on automated sharing, analysis, how to build trust in a community of interest, cross-sector sharing, the role of government in information sharing, the value proposition of an ISAO, and much more.
