IN-ISAC earns national technology award

The Indiana Information Sharing and Analysis Center (IN-ISAC) is a winner in the 2016 Digital Government Achievement Awards (DGAA), sponsored by the Center for Digital Government (CDG).

The IN-ISAC is a multi-agency initiative to reduce the overall cost of cybersecurity through the centralization of resources, leveraging of large-scale purchasing, improved prevention efforts and faster containment of threats. It focuses upon the sharing of threat information and collaboration on strategies. IN-ISAC, through its Security Operations Center (SOC) in West Lafayette, provides real-time network monitoring, vulnerability identification and threat warnings.

“This is a tremendous honor for the IN-ISAC to earn this recognition less than a year after its launch,” said Nick Sturgeon, IN-ISAC manager. “We are working hard, staying focused on our mission and determined to serve the cause of cybersecurity using cutting-edge technology and constant vigilance by our staff.”

Whether one is paying bills online, running a business using online applications or communicating with friends and family through social media, every Hoosier adult, child and business is at risk for a cyberattack.

It is because this threat has only increased each year that the State of Indiana is leading a statewide, collaborative effort involving government, private-sector, military, research and academic stakeholders to enhance Indiana’s cybersecurity posture by establishing a Cybersecurity Council. For more information about this council, visit

As the State of Indiana works with its state, federal and private partners, it will reduce the risk of cyber threats to Hoosiers, making Indiana a safer place to live and do business in. It will be through this unique partnership that the State of Indiana develops a progressive strategic vision, coordinates its efforts and turns good ideas and preventative measures into effective action.

Stay Informed and Be Prepared! 

The State of Indiana can’t do this alone. It needs EVERY Hoosier to be aware of the potential cyber threats and what each of you can do to protect not only yourself but also your children, employees and business information.

This website is intended to be a central hub of information for Hoosiers to find resources and more information about how to stay informed and safe from these ever-growing cyber threats.
