Reporting Internet incidents to Homeland Security
In case you missed the memo, Howard Schmidt acting chairman of the President's Cybersecurity Board announced the National Communications System is the place you are supposed to report Internet infrastructure incidents. http://www.fcw.com/fcw/articles/2003/0331/web-cyber-04-02-03.asp "Many incidents can be handled by the private sector, but there is current discussion about how to better define expectations on the government side and to institutionalize what type of incidents will be automatically reported to the government, Schmidt said." "One step officials already have made is to establish the National Communications System (NCS) as the key contact point for industry representatives when reporting Internet infrastructure incidents, he said."
