IT-ISAC Special Interest Groups
A core value of IT-ISAC membership is the ability to collaborate with colleagues and subject matter experts from other member companies on common topics. This collaboration is supported by the protection of the IT-ISAC Member Agreement. Being involved in an IT-ISAC special interest group is a great way to engage with peers in other member companies.
Elections Industry SIG
The Elections Industry SIG supports voting technology providers by giving them an industry-only forum to share information about threats to their enterprises and systems and collaborate on election security challenges. This group meets bi-weekly. This SIG requires an application to be completed by interested companies and is designed for participation from senior-level employees at election technology companies, such as those that operate in government affairs or security.
Critical SaaS SIG
The Critical SaaS (CSaaS) SIG serves as a forum for CSaaS companies to collaborate on a collective defense strategy to improve the security and operational resiliency of their services and share intelligence information with the industry at large. It enables companies who are essential to the internet to share cyber threat intelligence and effective security practices. It also provides a framework for these companies to collaborate on future security issues. The SIG holds a weekly analysts meeting and requires an application from interested companies. This group is designed for security managers, analysts, and IT executives from Critical SaaS companies.
