Welcome to the IT SCC Homepage
OVERVIEW OF THE IT SCC
The Information Technology Sector Coordinating Council was established on January 27, 2006 for the purposes of bringing together companies, associations, and other key IT sector participants on a regular basis to coordinate strategic activities and communicate broad sector member views associated with infrastructure protection, response and recovery that are broadly relevant to the IT Sector. The IT sector envisions a secure, resilient, and protected global information infrastructure that can rapidly restore services if affected by an emergency or crisis, ensuring the continued and efficient function of information technologies, infrastructures and services for people, governments, and businesses worldwide.
HOW IS THE IT SCC FUNDED?
The IT SCC seeks to create an organization that is both financially viable and able to operate independently and objectively. The IT SCC will determine necessary funding requirements to maintain its operations and activities and seek initial voluntary support from member organizations to help fund these activities. The IT SCC may consider the use of government resources to support appropriate tasks such as administrative, meeting logistics, specifically defined and mutually agreeable projects, and communications support (particularly in response to government requests or needs).
