Travel ISAC

The Travel Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Travel ISAC) was created at the request of several hospitality Chief Information Security Officers, in order to have a place where they could confidentially share information about security threats, best practices, security management, and solutions with the greater travel industry.

Forum membership is limited to senior travel industry information security executives and their teams. Normally the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), or the person(s) filling that role, represent their company, but they may bring support staff to face-to-face meetings. An annual fee of $1,500 per company is assessed for participation, and members pay nominal fees to attend face-to-face meetings.

For information on joining the Forum, please contact HTNG. Please note that membership in the ISAC is currently not available to technology providers, consultants, academics, or other individuals not employed by travel companies.

Unlike other HTNG efforts, meetings and communications are carried out under a mutual nondisclosure agreement and are made available only to participants whose companies have signed an identical mutual nondisclosure agreement.

The ISAC held its first face-to-face meeting in May 2014 and plans to meet approximately twice a year going forward. It maintains a listserve for rapid communication on emerging or evolving threats, conducts regular surveys of its members on key issues, and can mobilize conference calls when real-time security threats arise.
