C3S to Join National Computer Emergency Response Center


September 15, 2003

Carnegie Mellon's Center for Computer and Communication Security (C3S) and the CERT/Coordination Center (CERT/CC) are partnering with the Department of Homeland Security Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection to create a U.S. Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT). The center will reduce the response time to a security event to an average of 30 minutes by the end of 2004. One of their goals is to increase the flow of security information throughout the Internet, from homes to the government and industry.
