CISE working groups
The CISE Stakeholder Group may decide to constitute working groups during the transitional phase.
Currently, the below mentioned working groups have been created. Member States and Agencies have been asked to nominate participants. The working groups have dedicated work spaces in the restricted collaborative platform. As a main rule, the working groups operate as correspondence groups.
The Cooperation Agreement Working Group
This working group comprises experts appointed by CSG to be consulted in order to establish and, if needed, to review the Cooperation Agreement which regulates the information exchange in the CISE network.
The Responsibility to Share Working Group
Nominated members to this working group contribute to defining the voluntary audit scheme which will capture the ongoing exchange of information in the network. This audit scheme aims at promoting the implementation of the responsibility to share principle among the participants.
The Configuration Board Working Group.
This working group comprises experts appointed by CSG to be consulted in case there is a request of changes in the common and core software. The CSG members that do not have the node implemented can appoint an expert with the role of observer. Node Owners and Node Administrators are also considered part of this working group. In addition, experts taking part of the CISE Test Campaigns and experts supporting the Security Study are part of subgroups to this working group.
The Security Working Group
This working group comprises experts on information security. The main objectives of the group are to contribute to the process of formulating the security requirements for classified and unclassified information exchange within the CISE network and to prepare the security accreditation strategy for CISE to handle classified information.
The Pre-operational Services Working Group
This working group was established in order to develop new operational services for CISE. The main objectives are to agree on the scope and operational view of each service and to promote the implementation of the agreed services in the pre-operational phase. The group also serves as a forum to discuss the stakeholders’ information sharing plans.
Members of the CISE Stakeholder Group and working groups have been given access to the collaborative platform.
