The Cyber Senate has arranged a strategic alliance with The Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC), a Private/Public center for knowledge sharing regarding Industrial Control System (ICS) cybersecurity and part of Webster University's Cyberspace Research Institute.

The Cyber Senate will be developing and launching key events in coordination with the Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center, leveraging their insight, knowledge and capability to create progressive information sharing platforms.

ICS-ISAC has a mission to capture and transport critical cybersecurity information related to cyber risks to infrastructures between involved parties. James Nesbitt, Founder and Director of the Cyber Senate stated "We are very happy to have formed an alliance with the ICS ISAC. We feel strongly that this collaboration will benefit both public and private entities, providing a unique opportunity for all Critical National Infrastructure stakeholders and their respective verticals, to tap into a wealth of experience and knowledge required to assist in the progression of a safer more resilient society." 

ICS-ISAC Chair Chris Blask noted that Cyber Senate is an example of an information sharing organization which spans key demographics. "The mission of information sharing involves many stakeholders groups across the entire global community. The Cyber Senate captures key thought leaders and works to share information among them and with critical communities. We see The Cyber Senate as a highly valuable organization and are pleased to support the good work they are doing." 

The Cyber Senate is a networking and information triage, creating a common voice for the Cyber Security industry. We provide guidance on pressing security issues, as well as host events across key Smart Infrastructure sectors such as Energy, Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Transport and Healthcare to further progress public and private information sharing.

The Cyber Senate will be hosting its 2nd Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security USA and European conferences this fall in London England on September 28, 29 and 30th and in Sacramento California on October 12, 13 and 14th. The ICS ISAC will have key leadership positions in both international events.
