ABOUT the ST, PT and OTRB ISACs


The ST, PT & OTRB ISACs are a collaboration of Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs).
 
The Surface Transportation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ST-ISAC) was formed by the private sector to protect the United States' critical infrastructures from attack.  Sponsored by the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and operated by IIT, ST-ISAC collects, analyzes and distributes critical security and threat information from worldwide resources to protect each of its member's vital information and information technology systems from attack.  Its services are specifically tailored to meet the security demands of each one of its members.
 

The Public Transportation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (PT-ISAC) was created to further promote security for the public transportation industry.  Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and operated by IIT, the PT-ISAC collects, analyzes, and reports critical cyber and physical security and threat information from innumerable sources to include the U.S. private infrastructures, U.S. intelligence community, U.S. Government, U.S. Military, law enforcement, academia, and the international CERT community on a 24×7 basis. It provides a secure, two-way reporting -- enabling the transmission of critical alerts and advisories.  Thus, providing a critical linkage between the transit industry, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other critical entities.
 
The Over the Road Bus Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OTRB-ISAC) was created to promote security for the Over the Road Bus industry. In 2013, the Transportation Security Administration designated the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) as the sector coordinator with support from the American Bus Association (ABA) and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The ISAC functions as a clearinghouse for information on threats, vulnerabilities, and solutions to physical and cyber infrastructure security. It provides an efficient means of receiving/communicating threats and alerts, a secure means of sharing security information either anonymously or in an attributable manner, and classified communications capabilities.
