ABSTRACT

Legislative and Regulatory Group Report (1999)   [open pdf - 66KB]

The National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee's (NSTAC) Legislative and Regulatory Group (LRG) is charged with examining legislative, regulatory, and judicial actions for their possible impact on national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) telecommunications. Following NSTAC XXI, the LRG was tasked with addressing several key issues, including identifying and assessing the legal and regulatory obstacles to sharing outage and intrusion information. To that end, the LRG determined that identification and discussion of existing and proposed NS/EP-related outage and intrusion information sharing channels could provide additional insights to assist the Industry Executive Subcommittee (IES) in assessing critical information sharing issues, particularly those associated with the implementation of Presidential Decision Directive (PDD) 63 . To better understand the information sharing environment and the entities involved in the process, the LRG developed this report to illustrate the entities with whom telecommunications companies share outage and intrusion information, and to review the potential legal barriers that could inhibit the information sharing process.
