The Communications Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC), with its government partners, works to protect the Nation’s communications critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) from harm and to ensure that the Nation’s communications networks and systems are secure, resilient, and rapidly restored after a natural or manmade disaster. In carrying out this mission, the CSCC’s goals are to:
- Protect and enhance the overall physical and logical/cyber health of communications;
- Rapidly reconstitute critical communications services in the event of disruption and mitigate cascading effects;
- Improve the sector’s NS/EP posture with Federal, State, Local, Tribal, Territorial, and private sector entities to reduce risk.
