Overview Edit

The Department of Homeland Security's 24/7 Incident Handling Center ("24x7") focuses on ways to gather cyber information prior to attacks and to use that information to prevent attacks, protect computing infrastructure, and respond/restore where attacks are successful. 24x7 serves as a communication hub for the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) program, issuing regular security and warning bulletins, serving as a gateway for public contribution and outreach, and also serving as a ticketing center through which tasks may be delegated out to the various US-CERT programs.
