SC-ISAC

The Supply Chain Information Sharing & Analysis Center (SC-ISAC) was established as one of 13 ISAC’s as a result of Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD-63) in 1998. The directive emphasized that, because 90% of the nation’s critical infrastructures are owned and operated by the private sector, a public and private partnership is needed to share information about physical and cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents to help protect the critical infrastructures of the United States.

In line with this directive, LoJack SCI is proud to maintain the Supply Chain ISAC. Members of the SC-ISAC have access to relevant and current industry data on cargo theft and events across the nation. In addition to publishing quarterly data & statistical reports, SC-ISAC releases twice weekly bulletins on cargo theft activity.

What is SC-ISAC?

Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) were created as a result of Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD-63) in 1998. The directive emphasized that, because 90% of the nation’s critical infrastructures are owned and operated by the private sector, a public and private partnership is needed to share information about physical and cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents to help protect the critical infrastructures of the United States. PDD-63 was updated in 2003 with Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-7 to reaffirm the partnership mission. Today there are thirteen ISACs for critical infrastructure including the Financial Services, Electric, Energy and Surface Transportation sectors.

The definition of an ISAC is "a trusted, sector specific, entity which provides to its constituency a 24/7 Secure Operating Capability that establishes the sector’s specific information/intelligence requirements for incidents, threats and vulnerabilities. Based on its sector focused subject matter analytical expertise, the ISAC then collects, analyzes and disseminates alerts and incident reports to its membership and helps the government understand impacts for its sector."

 

There are four required characteristics of the information sharing and analysis structure necessary to support private and public industry:

 

  1. Trusted information sharing and analysis structure
  2. Trusted sector to sector relationships
  3. Private sector subject matter experts
  4. International reach
