Introduction News Escape
Modelled after the CDC in Atlanta, U.S., the GRC is designed to be the foremost cyber threats resource centre in the world. Working with leading partners from academia, governments and industry (current partners include Symantec Corporation, Kaspersky Lab, F-Secure, Trend Micro, Microsoft and many other stakeholders), the GRC provides the global community with a near real-time aggregated early warning system. The GRC’s 'Network Early Warning System’ (NEWS) helps partner countries identify cyber threats on the onset and provides critical guidance on what measures to take.

As the centrepiece of IMPACT, the GRC is equipped with a crisis room, state-of-the-art IT and communications equipment, a fully-functional always-on Security Operations Centre, fully-protected secure data centre, facilities for shift workers, on-site broadcasting centre, VIP viewing gallery etc. The GRC plays a pivotal role in realising the ITU GCA’s objectives of putting technical measures in place to combat new and evolving cyber threats.

The GRC provides the ITU’s Member States with access to specialised tools and systems, including NEWS and ‘Electronically Secure Collaborative Application Platform for Experts’ (ESCAPE). ESCAPE is a unique electronic tool that enables authorized cyber experts across different countries and verticals to pool resources together to collaborate with each other remotely, within a secured environment; this may include IT experts, regulators, Computer Incident Response Teams (CIRTs) and white hats. By converging resources and expertise from many different countries at short notice, ESCAPE will enable partner countries and the global community to respond immediately to cyber threats, especially during crisis.
  ESCAPE enables the GRC to act as a one-stop coordination and response centre for partner countries during emergencies, enabling swift identification and the sharing of available resources cross-borders.
