Communications ISAC

The Communications ISAC is the operational arm of the communications sector. Also known as the DHS National Coordinating Center, the ISAC’s goal is to avert or mitigate impacts upon telecommunications infrastructure so that communication networks remain operational. As a clearinghouse for physical and cyber alerts to the telecommunications industry, the ISAC collects, analyzes and disseminates information on vulnerabilities, threats, intrusions and anomalies to carriers, ISPs, satellite providers, broadcasters, vendors and other stakeholders. The Communications ISAC operates 24/7 and is an operational component within the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center.
Sector-based Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) collaborate and coordinate with each other via the National Council of ISACs (NCI). Formed in 2003, the NCI today comprises 24 organizations designated by their sectors as their information sharing and operational arms.
