The core mission of the CIAS-Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) is to help states, tribes, local jurisdictions and territories to establish a comprehensive cybersecurity program by using the congressional-supported Community Cyber Security Maturity Model (CCSMM).
The CIAS represents UTSA’s contribution as one of the founding partners of the Texas ISAO.
The CIAS is responsible for assisting the TxISAO membership with education and awareness to promote preparation for, protection from and prevention of cyber threats and attacks.
The ISAO Standards Organization works with existing information sharing organizations, owners and operators of critical infrastructure, relevant agencies and other public- and private-sector stake-holders through a voluntary consensus standards development process to identify a common set of voluntary guidelines for the creation and functioning of ISAOs.
The CIAS was established at UTSA in June of 2001 as part of UTSA’s creation of a cybersecurity program. The CIAS delivers quality research, training, K-12 education, and competition and exercise programs to advance organizational and community cybersecurity capabilities and collaboration.
