Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership

Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CISP), announced in March 2013[1], is a joint venture between industry and government, funded through the National Cyber Security Programme, to share information security threat and vulnerability information.

A group of 12-15 analysts (from MI5, GCHQ, National Crime Agency[2], and the private sector)[3] work at a "fusion cell" at an undisclosed location in London.[4][5]
