Overview Edit

The National Broadband Plan, issued by the Federal Communications Commission, proposed development of a Cybersecurity Information Reporting System (CIRS). The CIRS would help to provide the situational awareness in the IP infrastructure, which the FCC indicates is needed to coordinate responses to cyberattacks. CIRS would be a real-time, voluntary monitoring system for cyber events and would disseminate information quickly to service and network providers during major events.
