Announcing The OK-ISAC!

With the rise of cyber threats to Oklahoma, a practical approach was needed. To address that need, the Oklahoma Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OK-ISAC) was established as a multi-agency effort led and coordinated by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES). The main objective of this program is to mitigate cybersecurity risks across Oklahoma by providing real-time monitoring, vulnerability identification, incident response and threat intelligence to its members and partners. OK-ISAC is committed to ensuring the State of Oklahoma and its citizens are continuously educated and prepared to conduct day-to-day cyber activities in a safe and secure manner. OK-ISAC will include members from Oklahoma organizations, business leaders, and cybersecurity professionals. The OK-ISAC will enhance information sharing across Oklahoma and improve cyber resilience at all levels of participation—local, regional and national.
