Cyber Storm Findings

A quote from the DHS's recently released report about their Cyberstorm 
exercise in Feb:

Finding 3: Correlation of Multiple Incidents between Public and Private 
Sectors. Correlation of multiple incidents across multiple infrastructures 
and between the public and private sectors remains a major challenge. The 
cyber incident response community was generally effective in addressing 
single threats/attacks, and to some extent multiple threats/attack. 
However, most incidents were treated as individual and discrete events. 
Players were challenged when attempting to develop an integrated 
situational awareness picture and cohesive impact assessment across 
sectors and attack vectors.

And a question:
Do network operators have something to learn from these DHS activities
or do we have best practices that the DHS should be copying?
