The Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO) hosted an online public meeting on June 23 with attendees from multiple industry sectors, government, academia and the general public. The ISAO SO discussed the progress in the development of the ISAO Manual Version 1.0 and announced another upcoming comment period and a fall in-person meeting. These monthly public meetings are designed as an opportunity for the general public to provide feedback and comment to the ISAO SO and leadership team.
Highlights of the meeting included an overview of the current project status, upcoming timeline and next steps for the ISAO SO. These future steps include the fostering of information sharing and analysis, an increased emphasis on public outreach, development of ISAO support services, and creation of a resource library. The meeting closed with a question and answer session focusing on the 90 comments the ISAO SO received on the initial draft documents, the definition of an ISAO, and the concept of ISAO certification.
The next online public meeting will be held on July 21. This will be followed by an in-person public meeting on September 1 in Tysons, VA.
