The mission of the R-CISC is to create a trusted environment that facilitates threat intelligence and information sharing among global retailers, enhanced by incorporating insightful research and timely threat feeds from leading cybersecurity industry experts participating in its Associate Member Program. The Associate Member Program allows for the R-CISC’s retailer and commercial services member organizations to collaborate and share threat intelligence and critical cybersecurity information in real time with the industry’s leading security solutions providers.

Palo Alto Networks participation in the R-CISC Associate Program will provide R-CISC members with access to Palo Alto Networks threat intelligence, including information on advanced attacks, campaigns and adversaries from the AutoFocus and WildFire services, and the Unit 42 research and analysis team. This partnership will open up many exciting new opportunities including joint research to be developed specifically to empower retailers with actionable, prioritized information that will enable the prevention of and response to cyber breaches.
