National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, NSTAC Report to the President on the National Coordinating Center (May 10, 2006) (full-text).

Overview Edit

The NSTAC established the National Coordinating Center Task Force (NCCTF) to study the direction of the NCC over the next year, three years, and five years, including —

1. How industry members of the NCC should continue to partner with Government;
2. How the NCC should be structured; and
3. How the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) approach could impact the NCC.

Based on the NCCTF's analysis of issues facing the NCC, the NSTAC made the following recommendations:

  • Direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to expand the NCC to include both communications and IT companies and organizations. This would be a cross-sector industry/Government facility with a round-the-clock watch, and would be brought up to full strength during emergencies.
  • Direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to improve the ESF#2 Emergency Response Training and Exercise program, with a focus on enhancing coordination among industry members and Federal, State, and local responders during incidents of national significance. This program should focus on sector interdependencies for both physical and cyber threats, and would aim to produce actionable results. Industry must be involved from the earliest planning stages.
  • Direct the Secretary of Homeland Security and other Government stakeholders to examine the value received from the NCC relationship and, if sufficiently supported, commit the resources necessary to strengthen and support the organization and its mission.
