The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), a division of the not-for-profit Center for Internet Security, commenced its Ninth Annual Meeting Monday morning in Atlanta, Georgia. MS-ISAC members from 45 states, 3 U.S. territories and dozens of local governments meet to share ideas and identify solutions to address Advanced Persistent Threat and other cyber security challenges.
Jim Richards, West Virginia Chief Information Security Officer was appointed to the MS-ISAC Executive Committee. Jim was elected by his MS-ISAC colleagues.
The mission of the MS-ISAC is to improve the overall cyber security posture of state, local, territorial and tribal governments. Collaboration and information sharing among members, private sector partners and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are the keys to success.
