Information Security for London (ISfL), founded in 2003, the original and first WARP (Warning, Advice and Reporting Point) setup to broker secure information sharing between the London boroughs, has grown to work and serve the wider public sector community in London and draws its membership from this sector as well as the major charity and third sectors.

DEC 2021: Log4j vulnerability

A critical vulnerability has been discovered in the Apache Java logging library, Log4j, which is used in many applications and cloud services. ISfL recommend that you combat this threat by using a three-step approach: UPDATE, DISCOVER, DEPLOY.

COLLABORATION: ISfL seeks to support the pooling of its members efforts by working together to achieve the same information security goals. In this way the group makes the most of shared knowledge and experience, saving time and money.

ISfL collaborate wherever possible and have achieved a number of success stories including a well received and popular annual conference, the ISfL Protective Marking Methodology and the ISfL BYOD Toolkit as well as raising skills and awareness in the areas of information assurance, governance and security.

ISfL sees itself as a leader in public sector cyber security thinking, and embraces its WARP roots in working with other public sector WARPs in the UK.
