The White House, Presidential Policy Directive 41 (PPD-41): United States Cyber Incident Coordination (July 26, 2016) (full-text).

Overview

This Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) sets forth principles governing the Federal Government's response to any cyber incident, whether involving government or private sector entities. For significant cyber incidents, this PPD also establishes lead Federal agencies and an architecture for coordinating the broader Federal Government response.

This PPD further requires the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to maintain updated contact information for public use to assist entities affected by cyber incidents in reporting those incidents to the proper authorities.

It also directed the formation of a cyber unified coordination group (UCG) to coordinate incident response efforts for the most serious incidents.
