Critical Infrastructure & Information Collection Workshop

April 13, 2010, 1:00 PM - 4:45 PM EDT
Commission Meeting Room (TW-C305), 445 12th Street S.W., Washington, DC

As Americans increasingly rely on broadband services for so many aspects of their lives, including public safety and national security, it is critical for the FCC to gain a better understanding of the survivability of existing networks and explore potential measures to reduce network vulnerability to failures in network equipment or severe overload conditions in emergencies.

The workshop focused on reliability and security of the nation's communications critical infrastructure. Discussion addressed both protecting and securing communications and information systems and incentives that should be in place to encourage increased resiliency and security in communications networks. Panelists also discussed reliability information collection and how such data can help to improve the reliability and security of wired and wireless communications infrastructures including broadband networks.
