The National Association of State Chief Information Officers today announced it has signed an agreement with the primary federal infrastructure security analysis and warning center so that individual states can receive alerts on cyber and physical threats.

    The memorandum of agreement with the National Infrastructure Protection Center creates a formal venue for states to receive quick notification of general and specific warnings issued by the center.

    The NIPC, an interagency center, works closely with many public and private entities to develop alerts, analysis and assistance on infrastructure threats. It is part of the FBI; President Bush has proposed that the NIPC become part of the planned Homeland Security Department.
