Task Force Pushes for Early Warning System

The Cyber Security Early Warning task force, which includes representatives from businesses, trade groups, and academia, has issued its first set of recommendations. First is a call for the creation of an Early Warning Alert Network (EWAN) that would work with existing public-private information-sharing organizations to establish "trust communities" across industry sectors that would receive critical alerts on vulnerabilities, attacks, and exploits. The task force also envisions a National Crisis Coordination Center (NCCC), "a single physical center that pulls together public and private sector constituencies for full crisis prevention and response coordination," complete with backup power, a hot site, and a full-time staff assigned for tours of duty by members of each critical infrastructure and government sector.
