Welcome to the Multinational Alliance for Collaborative Cyber Situational Awareness (MACCSA).
MACCSA is a new and neutral multinational organisation, created to enable information sharing for Collaborative Cyber Situational Awareness (CCSA) across government, industry, military and international communities. MACCSA's Information Sharing Framework (ISF) originated from collaborative work by 15 nations in Multinational Experiment 7 (MNE7), and has since been improved to meet a range of emerging challenges, new international and national regulations, and best practices.
MACCSA is about developing and enabling - collaboratively. The ISF reflects that the latest work done on protocols and standards, as well as emerging regulatory requirements and best practices. Code has been developed to support security automation. The first cross-border information sharing pilots are underway. Work has begun to link to counter-fraud and crisis management.
MACCSA is neutral. Many governments, technology companies, end-user companies, military and international organisations participated in the transition from MNE7 to MACCSA. For them, trust is key to collaboration.
MACCSA is delivering capabilities. MACCSA and its partners continue to develop specifications for new collaborative capabilities that can be deployed nationally or internationally for use by government and industry organisations. Deployments can be done by collaborative, usually joint venture, arrangements or by MACCSA itself.
