NIST Computer Security Resource Center

Like our FBI CJIS Security Policy Resource Center site, this NIST site is a collection of information and resources for computer security. 

Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

“The IC3’s mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cybercrime. The IC3 gives the victims of cybercrime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local, and international level, the IC3 provides a central referral mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.”

Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Information Assurance

“At DISA, we believe that information is the greatest source of military power. It is imperative that our warfighters have the information they need, when they need it. Our duty is to ensure that information is accessible to the joint forces, while protecting the network—and the information on it—from being accessed by our adversaries. In order to achieve mission assurance and promote safe information sharing, DISA: makes data ubiquitously accessible while simultaneously restricting access, promotes the safe sharing of information, and prevents attacks by having network protections in place.”
