Legal Services Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (LS-ISAO)

Sharing communities are recognized as one of the best defenses against cyber threats and attacks. Firms are no longer alone in this hostile environment – members are ‘trust-sourcing’ threat indicators for analysts to research, scrub and anonymize, yielding actionable intelligence for dissemination in real and near-real time. LS-ISAO provides these intelligence and information sharing services to law firms.
