FCC Focuses on Communications Security

As a result of the terrorist attacks, the FCC has created a Homeland Security Policy Council. The purpose is to evaluate and strengthen measures for protecting U.S. communications services, ensure rapid restoration of communications services and facilities that have been disrupted as the result of threats to, or actions against, the nation and to ensure that public safety, health and other emergency and defense personnel have effective communications available to them to assist the public as needed.
The Homeland Security Policy Council will be comprised of senior staff from each of the Commission’s Bureaus and will be directed by FCC Chief of Staff Marsha MacBride.
