There are many major industries that are within the target range of the hackers and precisely for this reason they have formed an official cyber attack intelligence sharing mechanisms. On the other, the White House is setting up a central coordinating agency in order to evaluate and share information provided from the government side and a variety of other information sharing and analysis centers (ISAC) and also intelligence sharing organizations that are coming up in many industries.
These centers are actually being set up to facilitate accumulation and sharing of relevant and on time intelligence on latest cyber attacks by the government and the companies. This sharing of information helps to bypass major attacks and diminish damage to a great extent. ISACs offer official techniques to combat cyber attacks and threats related to various industries. Industries with ISAC are as follows- aviation, IT, maritime, real estate, water utilities and many others.
In spite of this unique platform industries still share information in the old-fashioned way.
