NCCIC

(National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center) An organization within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The offical description in 2009 was a "24-hour, DHS-led coordinated watch and warning center that will improve national efforts to address threats and incidents affecting the nation's critical information technology and cyber infrastructure."

The NCCIC provides an integrated incident response facility to mitigate risks that could disrupt or degrade critical information technology functions and services, while allowing for flexibility in handling traditional voice and more modern data networks.

The NCCIC operations center combines the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), which leads a public-private partnership to protect and defend the nation's cyber infrastructure, and the National Coordinating Center for Telecommunications (NCC), the operational arm of the National Communications System. In addition, the NCCIC integrates the efforts of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (see NCSC).
