The National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC)Information Sharing for Critical Infrastructure Protection Task Force developed this document, The NSTAC's Response to the National Plan, to highlight the NSTAC's work in several issue areas that are important to the main objectives of Version 1.0 of the National Plan for Information Systems Protection (National Plan). The issue areas are discussed in the context of summaries of previous NSTAC reports presented in the Appendix: Summaries of Previous NSTAC Reports. This document is organized around the three broad objectives listed in the National Plan, which are essential for critical infrastructure protection (CIP)--Prepare and Prevent, Detect and Respond, and Build Strong Foundations. In addition, it is proposed that a new broad objective--International Considerations--be included in Version 2.0 of the National Plan.
