Title: United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team
Url: http://www.us-cert.gov/
Publisher: United States. Dept. of Homeland Security
Description: Established in 2003, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) represents a substantial partnership between the Department of Homeland Security and the public and private sectors. The primary goal of US-CERT is "to protect the nation's Internet infrastructure." To achieve this goal, the organization analyzes and reduces cyber threats and vulnerabilities, disseminates cyber threat warning information, and also coordinates incident response activities. The material on their site is divided into three primary sections: "Security Publications", "Alerts and Tips", and "Related Resources". More casual users may wish to start by clicking over to the "Alert and Tips" area to read up on current security issues, vulnerabilities, and exploits. Helpful tools and documents can be found in the "Security Publications" area which includes fact sheets on securing computers, recovering from an attack, and general Internet security. Additionally, visitors can sign up to receive electronic newsletters from US-CERT and they may also wish to sign up for their RSS feeds.
