Policy. In order to address cyber threats to public health and safety, national security, and economic security of the United States, private companies, nonprofit organizations, executive departments and agencies (agencies), and other entities must be able to share information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents and collaborate to respond in as close to real time as possible. Organizations engaged in the sharing of information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents play an invaluable role in the collective cybersecurity of the United States. The purpose of this order is to encourage the voluntary formation of such organizations, to establish mechanisms to continually improve the capabilities and functions of these organizations, and to better allow these organizations to partner with the Federal Government on a voluntary basis. Such information sharing must be conducted in a manner that protects the privacy and civil liberties of individuals, that preserves business confidentiality, that safeguards the information being shared, and that protects the ability of the Government to detect, investigate, prevent, and respond to cyber threats to the public health and safety, national security, and economic security of the United States. This order builds upon the foundation established by Executive Order 13636 of February 12, 2013 (Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity), and Presidential Policy Directive–21 (PPD–21) of February 12, 2013 (Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience). Policy coordination, guidance, dispute resolution, and periodic in-progress reviews for the functions and programs described and assigned herein shall be provided through the interagency process established in Presidential Policy Directive–l (PPD–l) of February 13, 2009 (Organization of the National Security Council System), or any successor.

                Executive Order 13691 of February 13, 2015

                
Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity 
                Information Sharing

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Policy. In order to address cyber threats to 
                public health and safety, national security, and 
                economic security of the United States, private 
                companies, nonprofit organizations, executive 
                departments and agencies (agencies), and other entities 
                must be able to share information related to 
                cybersecurity risks and incidents and collaborate to 
                respond in as close to real time as possible.

                Organizations engaged in the sharing of information 
                related to cybersecurity risks and incidents play an 
                invaluable role in the collective cybersecurity of the 
                United States. The purpose of this order is to 
                encourage the voluntary formation of such 
                organizations, to establish mechanisms to continually 
                improve the capabilities and functions of these 
                organizations, and to better allow these organizations 
                to partner with the Federal Government on a voluntary 
                basis.

                Such information sharing must be conducted in a manner 
                that protects the privacy and civil liberties of 
                individuals, that preserves business confidentiality, 
                that safeguards the information being shared, and that 
                protects the ability of the Government to detect, 
                investigate, prevent, and respond to cyber threats to 
                the public health and safety, national security, and 
                economic security of the United States.

                This order builds upon the foundation established by 
                Executive Order 13636 of February 12, 2013 (Improving 
                Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity), and 
                Presidential Policy Directive-21 (PPD-21) of February 
                12, 2013 (Critical Infrastructure Security and 
                Resilience).

                Policy coordination, guidance, dispute resolution, and 
                periodic in-progress reviews for the functions and 
                programs described and assigned herein shall be 
                provided through the interagency process established in 
                Presidential Policy Directive-l (PPD-l) of February 13, 
                2009 (Organization of the National Security Council 
                System), or any successor.

                Sec. 2. Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations. 
                (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) 
                shall strongly encourage the development and formation 
                of Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations 
                (ISAOs).

                    (b) ISAOs may be organized on the basis of sector, 
                sub-sector, region, or any other affinity, including in 
                response to particular emerging threats or 
                vulnerabilities. ISAO membership may be drawn from the 
                public or private sectors, or consist of a combination 
                of public and private sector organizations. ISAOs may 
                be formed as for-profit or nonprofit entities.
                    (c) The National Cybersecurity and Communications 
                Integration Center (NCCIC), established under section 
                226(b) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (the 
                ``Act''), shall engage in continuous, collaborative, 
                and inclusive coordination with ISAOs on the sharing of 
                information related to cybersecurity risks and 
                incidents, addressing such risks and incidents, and 
                strengthening information security systems consistent 
                with sections 212 and 226 of the Act.
                    (d) In promoting the formation of ISAOs, the 
                Secretary shall consult with other Federal entities 
                responsible for conducting cybersecurity activities,

[[Page 9350]]

                including Sector-Specific Agencies, independent 
                regulatory agencies at their discretion, and national 
                security and law enforcement agencies.

                Sec. 3. ISAO Standards Organization. (a) The Secretary, 
                in consultation with other Federal entities responsible 
                for conducting cybersecurity and related activities, 
                shall, through an open and competitive process, enter 
                into an agreement with a nongovernmental organization 
                to serve as the ISAO Standards Organization (SO), which 
                shall identify a common set of voluntary standards or 
                guidelines for the creation and functioning of ISAOs 
                under this order. The standards shall further the goal 
                of creating robust information sharing related to 
                cybersecurity risks and incidents with ISAOs and among 
                ISAOs to create deeper and broader networks of 
                information sharing nationally, and to foster the 
                development and adoption of automated mechanisms for 
                the sharing of information. The standards will address 
                the baseline capabilities that ISAOs under this order 
                should possess and be able to demonstrate. These 
                standards shall address, but not be limited to, 
                contractual agreements, business processes, operating 
                procedures, technical means, and privacy protections, 
                such as minimization, for ISAO operation and ISAO 
                member participation.

                    (b) To be selected, the SO must demonstrate the 
                ability to engage and work across the broad community 
                of organizations engaged in sharing information related 
                to cybersecurity risks and incidents, including ISAOs, 
                and associations and private companies engaged in 
                information sharing in support of their customers.
                    (c) The agreement referenced in section 3(a) shall 
                require that the SO engage in an open public review and 
                comment process for the development of the standards 
                referenced above, soliciting the viewpoints of existing 
                entities engaged in sharing information related to 
                cybersecurity risks and incidents, owners and operators 
                of critical infrastructure, relevant agencies, and 
                other public and private sector stakeholders.
                    (d) The Secretary shall support the development of 
                these standards and, in carrying out the requirements
