National Council of ISACs Announces Newly Elected Leadership

Washington, D.C. – Following leadership elections on December 10, 2015, the National Council of ISACs (NCI) announced today the re-election of its chair and secretary and the election of a new vice-chair.
 
The NCI is an organization of 20 Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), which are trusted entities established by the nation’s critical infrastructure sectors.  Formed in response to federal homeland security directives, sector-based ISACs support a majority of U.S. private critical infrastructure with cyber and physical threat information and analysis, mitigation resources and other services.  Many ISACs also support critical infrastructure sectors in countries closely allied with the U.S. 

The role of the NCI in national security is one of coordination and communication across critical infrastructure sectors.  The NCI is a forum for sharing cyber and physical threat and response information across sectors and is a gateway to the ISACs for federal agencies and other partners.  The NCI also has an operational role following incidents of national significance.

At its recent monthly meeting, NCI members re-elected Denise Anderson to chair the Council for another year.  Anderson is the executive director of the National Health ISAC.  Anderson was previously the vice president for government and cross-sector programs at the Financial Services ISAC.

Josh Poster was re-elected secretary.  Poster is the senior analyst and public liaison at the Surface Transportation and Public Transportation ISACs.

The NCI’s new vice-chair is Fred Hintermister, who is the manager of cross-sector engagements at the Electricity ISAC.

The NCI’s outgoing vice chair is Scott Algeier, the executive director of the Information Technology ISAC, who served in the role since 2012.  “We owe Scott a big thanks for his years of service to the NCI and the ISAC community,” said Anderson.  “He’s still part of the NCI, of course, and we look forward his continued good counsel.”
