New Global Resilience Federation Will Share Threat Intel Across Industries

Born out of a partnership of information sharing and analysis centers and organizations, Global Resilience Federation launches today to share intelligence and information across a number of industry sectors.

With the growing trend of cybercriminals simultaneously targeting multiple industries at once, the Global Resilience Federation launches today to share security intelligence across a broad swath of industry sectors.

The Global Resilience Federation (GRF) will act as a hub to coordinate cross-sector intelligence among the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), Legal Services Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (LS-ISAO), and the Energy Analytic Security Exchange (EASE).

Previously, the FS-ISAC, one of the oldest and most established ISACs, held that role of coordinating information among various industries, but it was determined it was time for a change. The FS-ISAC via a formal partnership will transfer its sector services team to the GRF for its initial staff.

"The time is right to launch the GRF community of communities," said Bill Nelson, FS-ISAC president and CEO, and chairman of the GRF board, in a statement. "With the cross-pollination and wide-range of intelligence sources we deal with every day, across many industries, it makes sense that FS-ISAC no longer coordinate intelligence for all our partner organizations, but instead pass the torch to GRF and then join the community as one member among many."
