HISTORY OF GRF
Global Resilience Federation is the evolution of 1998's U.S. Presidential Decision Directive 63 and 2003's Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 which mandated that the public and private sectors share information about cyber and physical security threats and vulnerabilities to help protect critical infrastructure. In May 2017, GRF was reconstituted as a standalone company from a former Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) division to coordinate multi-industry sharing, and stand-up new sharing communities to be incorporated into that voluntary sharing architecture.
That effort has expanded beyond the United States and critical infrastructure to encompass global organizations, vital industries, and supply chains. GRF members span five continents, working to protect industries deemed critical by most world governments, and others that are vital to the global economy.
As industry and threat actors both adapt, cross-sector sharing is a necessary progression in the security of our modern digital economy.
