the United Kingdom, it comprises a number of departments and is charged with
protecting the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). To accomplish this
important task, NISCC partners with Telecommunications,
Energy, and Water agencies to provide threat assessments and warnings related
to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) incidents.
Though NISCC has access to a huge body of data benefiting
the broader community, it realized that it did not have a clearly defined means
of distributing data to trusted parties and that to perform their mission
effectively, NISCC needed access to data on incidents from reputable, trusted parties. For these reasons,
NISCC introduced the WARP (Warning Advice and Reporting Point) system, in which
interested communities work together to share intelligence
with the purpose of reducing ICT system attacks.
