Retailers Ban Together; Form Cybercrime Fighting Association

Today the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), along with several of America’s most recognized retail brands, launched the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC). The R-CISC is an independent organization, the centerpiece of which is a Retail Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Retail-ISAC). Among those companies participating with and supportive of the R-CISC are American Eagle Outfitters, Gap Inc., J. C. Penney Company Inc., Lowe’s Companies, Inc., Nike, Inc., Safeway, Inc., Target Corporation, VF Corporation and Walgreen Company.

Through the R-CISC, retailers are sharing cyber threat information among themselves and, via analysts, with public and private stakeholders, such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The R-CISC will also provide advanced training and education and research resources for retailers.
