  The mission of the IPC is both a security and law enforcement effort to detect, deter, assess, warn of, respond to, and investigate computer intrusions and unlawful acts, both physical and "cyber," that threaten or target our critical infrastructures.

The IPC's job is not simply to investigate and respond to attacks after they occur, but to learn about preventing them.

"The IPC will provide a focal point for gathering information on threats to the infrastructures. Additionally, the IPC will provide the principal means for facilitating and coordinating the Artist's resources to an incident, mitigating attack."

President William J. Andujar
