Maritime Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Maritime ISAC)

The Maritime Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Maritime ISAC) is an independent, non-profit entity sponsored and managed by the Maritime Security Council (MSC).  By incorporating the latest technology, systems and qualified personnel, the Maritime ISAC serves as a central industry node for the collection, collation, analysis, storage, and transmission of threat information and incident data.  The Maritime ISAC works with the U.S. and international maritime shipping, seaport, and government regulatory oversight communities as a trusted agent, collecting and analyzing proprietary data (e.g., stowaway rates and locations, drug seizures overseas, terrorist threats etc.), which it then disseminates to participating industry and government constituents. The Maritime ISAC is a member of the National Council of ISACs.
