The Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP)
6th September 2019, Smartdesc has been approved to join the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP).
The Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP) is a joint industry and government initiative set up to exchange cyber threat information in real time, in a secure, confidential and dynamic environment, increasing situational awareness and reducing the impact on UK business.
By being part of the NCSC Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership, it means that Smartdesc will be kept up to date with the latest information on worldwide Cyber Security threats. This information is extremely valuable to enable the Smartdesc team to proactively keep customers informed about current live issues and potential threats that are most likely to affect their organisations and advise them on what can be done to reduce the risks.
To become a registered CiSP member, a company must be:
- a UK registered company or other legal entity which is responsible for the administration of an electronic communications network in the UK
- sponsored by either a government department, existing CiSP member or a regional Cyber PROTECT police officer or industry champion.
The benefits of CiSP:
- engagement with industry and government counterparts in a secure environment
- early warning of cyber threats
- ability to learn from experiences, mistakes, successes of other users and seek advice
- an improved ability to protect their company network
- access to free network monitoring reports tailored to your organisations’ requirements
