Recap: Workshop on Info Sharing and Safeguarding Standards

Posted By Andrea A. Walter, Friday, March 27, 2015

Another successful Workshop on Information Sharing and Safeguarding Standards, or WIS3, went in the books yesterday at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston, Virginia. 

Michael Daniel, special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator for the White House, opened the event and discussed the differences between traditional security versus cybersecurity that necessitate changes in how we collectively deal with cybersecurity as a nation. One of his points was that there is an inherent need for government and industry partnerships to tackle this growing threat. 

Throughout the day, panels discussed operationalizing and expanding Project Interoperability, advances in maritime information sharing, trustmarks, and geospatial standards. 

ISE Program Manager Kshemendra Paul wrote a great recap article on WIS3 on his blog at

The WIS3 event also officially rolled out the new website for the Standards Coordination Council at

Next year's WIS3 event will be held in March 2016. We hope to see you there.
