Chapter 9: Information Sharing and Analysis Centers. This chapter outlines and summarizes all relevant Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISAC), which are information dissemination and distribution points for critical information that may pertain to that particular sector. Not all sectors listed within the President’s Report on Critical Infrastructure [Presidential Decision Directive-63 and Homeland Security Presidential Decision Directive (HSPD)-7/HSPD-8] outline all ISAC organizations; however, an effort was made to provide as much information as possible and how it is relevant and pertains to critical infrastructure environments.
