Echols, Director, JPMO, Department of Homeland Security, michael.echols@ dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background and Purpose On February 13, 2015, President Obama signed E.O. 13691 intended to enable and facilitate ‘‘private companies, nonprofit organizations, and executive departments and agencies . . . to share information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents and collaborate to respond in as close to real time as possible.’’ The order addresses two concerns the private sector has raised: • How can companies share information if they do not fit neatly into the sector-based structure of the existing Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs)? VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:07 May 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 • If a group of companies wants to start an information sharing organization, what model should they follow? What are the best practices for such an organization? ISAOs may allow organizations to robustly participate in DHS information sharing programs even if they do not fit into an existing critical infrastructure sector, seek to collaborate with other companies in different ways (regionally, for example), or lack sufficient resources to share directly with the government. ISAOs may participate in existing DHS cybersecurity information sharing programs and contribute to near-realtime sharing of cyber threat indicators.
