European Energy - Information Sharing & Analysis Centre (EE-ISAC)[4] is a network of private utilities, solution providers and (semi) public institutions such as academia, governmental and non-profit organizations which share valuable information on cyber resilience to strengthen the cyber security of the European Power Grid.


In India, the Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) operates as an independent non-profit organization that works closely as Public-Private-Partner (PPP) with apex nodal agency for cyber security, National Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Center (NCIIPC), designated under the IT Act Law 2000.
