New portal platform to be launched in September

The ES-ISAC is pleased to announce the next release of the ES-ISAC portal.  This new portal is on target to debut before the end of September.  This is a long anticipated release and puts us in position to bring even more capabilities to our membership. We have been using the current platform for over three years! We have learned from your feedback and are excited to show you the platform. This is a first release that will continue to grow with your guidance and input. 

This initial release has been rebuilt from the ground up.  Some of the key features include:

  • Comprehensive and simplified look and feel for the entire platform
  • Separate Cybersecurity and Physical Security filterable activity feeds
  • More granular alerting and notification capabilities
  • Group support to allow in-depth collaboration between peers
  • Full API support to allow for automation and integration

The ES-ISAC will be previewing the new platform release to members on the regularly scheduled ES-ISAC Monthly conference call on September 1st at 3PM EST.  We are also preparing training materials and webinars both prior to and after the launch.  The launch date will be announced in the coming days.
