The R-CISC is the trusted cybersecurity community for retailers, consumer product and service organizations, and cybersecurity industry partners worldwide. The R-CISC, through its operation as the Retail ISAC supports its members base that represents over $1 Trillion in annual revenues by serving as the conduit for collaboration, threat intelligence sharing and cooperation. We do this by building and sustaining valuable programs, partnerships, products and opportunities that enable our members to grow in their trust–based relationships, strategic knowledge and tactical capabilities. Through the R-CISC, members of all sizes share cyber intelligence on incidents, threats, vulnerabilities, and associated threat remediation because as a community, we understand that we are stronger together.
Trust is essential to creating robust collaboration. Across the retail industry, the R-CISC provides the opportunity to submit information either anonymously or with attribution using the information sharing framework. Employing the Traffic Light Protocol (Red, Amber, Green, White) ensures that only R-CISC members will receive information classified Amber or above. Threat intelligence will be enhanced with information coming from government sources, as well as third-party threat intelligence sources.
