Dual Efforts
I agree this is good news. Threat intel sharing is good. Still to Kelly's point, it seems like those organizations should be working together closely on something like this. The findings of the Ponemon study are interesting, and to me underscore that there needs to be a solid mechanism in place for people to share relevant information so that  companies can react promptly. Will be interesting to see how and if it all comes together.

Dual or Duel?
The good news here is that the retail industry now has a formal way to share threat intelligence/attack information, but I have to wonder if having dual efforts is more of a dueling efforts issue.

Great Move
So this is a really good idea and I'm glad to see this emerge.  For industries in the "critical infrastructure" bucket, intelligence-sharing efforts have been around for a while, but it's exactly retail where it's most needed.  Why?  Because security organizations in retail tend to have tighter budgets than industries like financial services, energy, or even (if you can believe it) healthcare.  This is true despite the fact that they're a tempting target of attack for a financially-motivated adversary.  It's an artifact of the business that they're in and the fact that they need to (for business purposes) operate at a very tight margin.  

From a PCI compliance standpoint, it's also helpful to the extent that it can help them address DSS 6.1, which is a known "pain point", particularly for the mid-market.  Anyway, longwinded way of saying that this is fantastic news.
