ABSTRACT

National Cyber Incident Response Plan: Interim Version, September 2010   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The rapidly converging information technology (IT) and communications infrastructure, known as 'cyberspace', touches every corner of the globe and every facet of human life. The United States in particular continues to embrace the cyber domain, utilizing it for diverse activities from increasing energy efficiency to conducting financial transactions. Recognizing this national reliance on cyberspace and the interdependent nature of the Nation's current cyber infrastructure, the President commissioned the Cyberspace Policy Review. [...] This report, released on May 29, 2009, builds on the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) and calls for the development of a 'cybersecurity incident response plan'. This National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP) was developed according to the principles outlined in the National Response Framework (NRF) and describes how the Nation responds to Significant Cyber Incidents. While the NRF provides the Nation with 'guiding principles that enable all response partners to prepare for and provide a unified national response', the NRF Incident Annexes provide guidance on how to address specific contingency or hazard situations."
