Sallie McDonald, the senior executive responsible for outreach and awareness efforts at the agency, said the National Cyber Security Division of the DHS is working with SRI International, Symantec, and Computer Associates International to develop a nonproprietary data collection system that will run on an automated security extranet and feed incident reports to the various Information Sharing and Analysis Centers operating in the private sector. The ISACs would then feed the data to the national situation-awareness system. Full Story
