Throughout her career, Ms. Cooper has devoted much of her personal and professional time to sharing resources and educating all parties involved in network security incident response.
Abstract: The creation of Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) to protect critical infrastructure is encouraged by \"Presidential Decision Directive 63.\" ISACs exist now for the financial services, information technology, telecommunications, and electric utility industries. The Federal government has proposed legislation that would ensure the confidentiality of information collected by ISACs and would also provide antitrust and liability protection.

IOPS is considering the formation of an ISAC for the Internet. The goal is to help coordinate the resolution of Internet problems and to help protect the Internet. Membership in this ISAC would be much larger and more diverse than that of IOPS. The current plan is to hire a contractor to provide the necessary support for the 7x24 operation of the center itself.

This talk will:

  • Summarize the information that IOPS has received about other ISACs

  • Present the requirements we have drafted for an ISP-ISAC

  • Discuss IOPS\' current ideas, including feedback that has been received from potential support contractors

  • Most important -- obtain input from NANOG participants about their thoughts and their potential interest.
