    I want to congratulate the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), in its capacity as the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) Standards Organization, for its outstanding work that resulted in the recent publication of four guidance documents in support of the creation and operation of ISAOs.

    Executive Order (EO) 13691, issued in February of 2015, directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to encourage the development and formation of ISAOs. Additionally, the EO required the department to select, through an open and competitive process, a non-governmental entity to serve as the ISAO Standards Organization. Through this process, DHS selected UTSA to serve as the ISAO Standards Organization with the purpose of identifying standards and guidelines for robust and effective information sharing and the widespread establishment of ISAOs. ISAOs go beyond critical infrastructure sectors and are formed on the basis of sector, sub-sector, region, or any affinity, including in response to particular emerging threats or vulnerabilities.
