The ISAO Standards Organization today announced the winners of the inaugural Information Sharing Hall of Fame Awards at the 2017 International Information Sharing Conference. These awards recognize those individuals and organizations who have demonstrated the highest standards of professional competence and selflessness and have contributed significantly to the promotion of the information sharing ecosystem.

Congratulations to the winners in the two award categories for 2017:
Information Sharing Hall Of Fame 2017 — Individual:
David Powell, CyberUSA and Federal Business Council
This individual is a notable leader and visionary based upon their leadership in advancing, growing, and shaping the information sharing community.
Information Sharing Hall Of Fame 2017 — Organization:
The MITRE Corporation
This award honors an organization for their commitment to advancing information sharing as a vital aspect of cybersecurity defense plans.
MITRE’s contributions to ISAOs, formerly a space signified by cyber capacity building that included threat data sharing and other features, exemplify its “people in partnership” core value, as shown through its demonstrated commitment to public-private partnerships, and by catalyzing and providing strategic guidance to regional ISAOs such as the Advanced Cyber Security Center, the Northeast Ohio Cyber Consortium (NEOCC), the California Cybersecurity Information Sharing Organization (CalCISO), and the emerging Mid-Atlantic Cyber Center (MACC); and supporting the development of cyber information-sharing automation standards, such as STIX, TAXII, and CyBOX. Finally, MITRE has committed to support the ISAO SO through engaged participation in nearly all of the ISAO Standards Organization Working Groups (WG).
