The National Cyber Security Partnership (NCSP), formed last year to assess risks to the nation's critical infrastructure, plans to unveil March 18 its Web site and two of five reports from its critical infrastructure task forces.

The partnership, headed by the Business Software Alliance; the Information Technology Association of America; TechNet, a chief executive officers group; and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, includes academic, corporate, government and industry experts on cybersecurity.

Last year, NCSP members organized five task forces to work on key issues that were defined in the President's National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. The key issues were security awareness for home users and small businesses, cybersecurity early warnings, technical standards and common criteria, security throughout the life cycle of software development, and corporate governance.
