IEEE-SA - ICSG: Industry Connections Security Group
Promoting collaboration and information sharing across the IT security industry

ABOUT THE IEEE INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS SECURITY GROUP

ICSG is a global group of computer security entities that have come together to pool experience and resources in combating the systematic and rapid rise in computer security threats. In the past few years, attackers have shifted away from mass distribution of a small number of threats to micro distribution of millions of distinct threats. 

ICSG was established, under the umbrella of the IEEE-SA Industry Connections program, out of the desire by many in the security industry to more efficiently address these growing threats in a coordinated fashion.
