The Los Angeles Integrated Security Operations Center (ISOC): Taking Command of Cyber

In response to the nation’s growing threat of cyber attacks, and an executive directive form the Mayor, the city of Los Angeles established the Cyber Intrusion Command Center (CICC), an interdepartmental working group that facilitates the identification and investigation of cybersecurity threats and intrusions against city assets.

isoc2The CICC’s greatest accomplishment is the creation of the Integrated Security Operations Center (ISOC), housed in the offices of the LAPD Real Time Analysis and Critical Response (RACR) unit. The ISOC aggregates data from the City, the proprietary departments, FBI and other federal partners, and private vendors to provide real-time situational awareness of cyber threats and intrusions against City assets.

The ISOC will also serve as the command center during cybersecurity breaches or other high-impact incidents. The ISOC displays all of this data and intelligence on electronic dashboards, which can be viewed in person at the ISOC or remotely from any computer on the City’s network.
