Abstract:

I am pleased to be here today to discuss our review of the National Infrastructure Protection Center NIPC. As you know, the NIPC is an important element of our government s strategy to protect our national infrastructures from hostile attacks, especially computer-based attacks. This strategy was outlined in Presidential Decision Directive PDD 63, which was issued in May 1998.
