National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center & Database
The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for protecting our Nation’s critical infrastructure from physical and cyber threats. Cyberspace enables businesses and government to operate, facilitates emergency preparedness communications, and enables critical control systems processes. Protecting these systems is essential to the resilience and reliability of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources and to our economic and national security.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Vulnerability Database (NVD) is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) / United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). For modified or updated entries, please visit the NVD, which contains historical vulnerability information.
The NCCIC serves as a central location where a diverse set of partners involved in cybersecurity and communications protection coordinate and synchronize their efforts. NCCIC’s partners include other government agencies, the private sector, and international entities. Working closely with its partners, NCCIC analyzes cybersecurity and communications information, shares timely and actionable information, and coordinates response, mitigation and recovery efforts.
