One of the criticisms of the change relative to this group
is that the previous stronger wording for the network
operator industry was watered down. Instead of
expecting/demanding/mandating that the industry collaborate
on network security (creating an ISAC and other measures),
the latest draft simply recommends that the industry
consider these measures.

Is there anything happening with collaborative security
policy and remediation in the industry? Has any effort 
showed progress towards an effective ISAC or similar? Can 
networks realistically collaborate on security, or do the 
political and operational barriers not justify the effort?

Pete.
