NCC Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 016 stipulates that concerns regarding proprietary information be resolved with the reporting entity before the incident report is released to other industry or Government representatives or organizations. The NCC seeks to ensure the anonymity of the entity reporting an incident. Information reported to the NCC belongs to the organization reporting the incident. An incident report is released to only those organizations with which the reporting organization wishes to share the information. Moreover, the reporting organization has final approval of the content contained in the report.
