ISAC is an informal, non-profit association of defense contractors, Defense Security Service, and Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel as volunteers. It was formed to assist defense contractors in compliance with the National Industrial Security program and with the protection of classified and company proprietary information through training for security personnel, provision of security awareness media and materials, and dissemination of counterintelligence and other security-related information.
