The Department of Homeland Security, through its Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) are pleased to announce a joint partnership to develop a series of national webcasts which will examine critical and timely cyber security issues. Embracing the concept that security is everyone's responsibility, these webcasts will be available to a broad audience to help raise awareness and knowledge levels.

The first webcast to be launched in this series will take place on Tuesday, June 22, 2004 from 3:00pm - 4:00pm Eastern. The session is entitled Cyber Security: The Three Things You Should Have Done Yesterday and The Three Things You Should Do Today. The event will feature opening remarks from Mr. Howard Schmidt, Chair, US Department of Homeland Security Cyber Security Summit Awareness Task Force and Mr. Amit Yoran, Director, National Cyber Security Division, US Department of Homeland Security. An overview of the National Webcast Initiative will be presented by William Pelgrin, Chair of the MS-ISAC, and the webcast session will be conducted by Ms. Barbara Chung, Senior Technology Specialist, National Technology Team, Microsoft Corporation.

The National Webcast Initiative is a collaborative effort between government and the private sector to help strengthen our Nation's cyber readiness and resilience. A number of vendors have offered their services at no cost to government, to help develop and deliver the webcasts. Additional co-partners may be identified as the Initiative grows and this list of participants may change.
