The Cyber Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP) was formally taken over by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on 1 October 2016 with no loss of operational service to its several thousand members. In order to align CiSP with the work of the NCSC, CiSP underwent an extensive rebranding and adopted the NCSC logos and graphics. New features were also released, such as Structured Incident Reports.

CiSP's membership has increased significantly in 2016. We have seen growth of 42% and 45% respectively for individuals and organisations joining the community this year, with more than 20 different industrial sectors represented. Since the launch of the NCSC website, CiSP applications have tripled, and member traffic on the platform has increased by 25%.
