NCS Prepping 'gee-whiz' Pilot
The pilot project will assess how well critical areas of the Internet are performing worldwide, and then use that data to notify government, industry or U.S. allies of an impending cyberattack or possible disturbance, said Brenton Greene, deputy manager of NCS.
Those indicators will include looking at the performance of selected government and industry e-commerce sites, as well as tools to identify and detect worms or denial of service attacks, he said, adding that the pilot project (also called the Global Cyber Early Warning Information System) will not be ready for launch until next year.
