Anthem
Anthem is a great example of this.  The signs of the Anthem compromise were there many months before Anthem itself noticed anything.  Had there been greater communication, something could have been done a lot sooner.

This is still the road to nowhere
ISACs can't work until the affected industries figure out how to shield themselves from competetive disadvantage as a result of revealing their vulnerabilities and the government gives them a legal get  out of jail card that frees them from liabililty (opening the kimono is great for cyber situational awareness but the tort lawyer's bar will have a field day with this ammunition).

Will they pay attention?
I'm all for more information-sharing across industry sectors, but unless executives go beyond giving lip service about taking security seriously, I don't know how effective these programs will be.

My hope is that if these sharing services can provide some specifics (hey, our PoS systems just got hit, better go check yours), maybe they can reduce the severity of a breach, but a lack of information about threats and risks is not really the problem.
