DHS has released for public comment a draft of the National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP), which describes a nationwide approach to cyber incidents; the important role that private sector entities, States, and multiple Federal agencies play in responding to cyber incidents; and how those activities all fit together. This plan was developed by DHS along with representatives from other Federal government agencies, State and local governments, and critical infrastructure owners and operators from a variety of sectors.
This plan updates the concepts and principles from the interim 2010 version with best practices from the community, lessons learned from recent cyber incidents and exercises, and policy updates.
As part of this effort, DHS wants to engage the cyber community and encourage engagement and feedback during the public comment period, which concludes at 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on October 31, 2016.
To review the draft of the refreshed NCIRP, visit the NCIRP webpage.
