Associate Membership

R-CISC Membership

 

Associate Members are industry leaders that are committed to the R-CISC mission and support to further the R-CISC mission by becoming an associate member. An Associate Member can visibly demonstrate their industry leadership and commitment to retail cyber intelligence and data security through membership in the R-CISC. There are tiered levels of membership within the R-CISC offered at either the Platinum, Premiere or Supporting Tiers.

Joining the R-CISC is an important leap in gaining access to actionable intelligence while making the industry stronger and safer against the onslaught of threats. Being involved with the R-CISC through events, Associate programs or other activities supports the industry and helps to position your company and its leaders as a thought leader and trusted adviser in the Retail and Commercial Services ecosystem. By joining the R-CISC Associate program, it is expected that all Associates will and do agree to support the R-CISC by securely and freely sharing information, promoting RCS-ISAC events & workshops, providing value-driven referrals and introductions to future potential members of R-CISC – and to help grow its membership base, which grows the value for all involved and supports the Retail industry with an increased focus on actionable member benefits against threat and risks daily.
