What is NDISAC?
The National Defense Information Sharing and Analysis Center™ (NDISAC™) is the trusted all-hazards community formed to enhance the security and resiliency of the defense industry and its strategic partners.
NDISAC supports our membership base by facilitating collaboration, threat intelligence sharing and cooperation. We do this through the creation and management of valuable defense sector programs, partnerships, products and opportunities that enable our members to grow in their trust–based relationships, strategic knowledge and tactical capabilities. Members of all sizes share intelligence on incidents, cyber and physical threats, vulnerabilities, and associated threat remediation.
Trust is essential to creating an active collaborative environment. The NDISAC organizational trust model among its membership is relatively unique. Unlike other organizations of similar objective, internal NDISAC threat information sharing and collaborative coordination is generally done with full attribution among the participants. Members are governed by a mutually exercised non-disclosure agreement, and have the confidence that data shared and context discussed is not subject to further dissemination. Employing the Traffic Light Protocol (Red, Amber, Green, White) ensures that only NDISAC members will receive information classified Amber or above.
As a result, NDISAC threat sharing and collaboration occurs with an exceptional degree of trust, candor, and cooperation; and is undertaken with full confidence that all information shared and mitigation strategies discussed will not be attributed beyond the trusted environment. This provides mutuality of trust, as well as an immediate perspective of the trustworthiness and value of the data shared based upon its attributed source.
