Navigating the Information Sharing Ecosystem

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

The Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO) hosted the inaugural International Information Sharing Conference on October 31 – November 1, 2017 with participation from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

This two-day event, a first of its kind, convened practitioners from small businesses to multi-national corporations and from information sharing newcomers to well-established cybersecurity organizations. This conference discussed current cyber information sharing topics and provided opportunities to see competing approaches and innovations in platforms and services.

Attendees had the chance to gain knowledge about the information sharing 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 focused 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.
