Delaware ISAC Taking Shape!

By: Elayne Starkey, Chief Security Officer, State of Delaware - Department of Technology and Information

The Delaware Information Sharing and Analysis Center (DE-ISAC) is taking shape!  

Our goal is to build a statewide, cross-sector, multi-disciplinary group focused on limiting the impact of cyber disruptions in the state.  We are finalizing the framework and incorporating feedback from our stakeholders and from other states.  

The July kickoff meeting was well attended and the energy level in the room was high.  I’m grateful to the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness for joining us and sharing the details of the Garden State's successful rollout of the NJ Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC).  It’s a model for all of us to strive for. 

We are all disturbed by the number of cyber-attacks on government and private sector organizations.  This is a threat that knows no borders, and a coordinated focus across all sectors and with other states will go a long way toward achieving a high level of cyber resiliency. 

Hats off to the New Jersey team, and we look forward to working with you!
