Notice of this meeting is given under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). The NIAC shall provide the President through the Secretary of Homeland Security with advice on the security of the critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems.

Pursuant to 41 CFR 102-3.150(b), this notice was published late as a result of exceptional circumstances.

As noted above, that date is July 12, 2010.

The NIAC will meet to address issues relevant to the protection of critical infrastructure as directed by the President. At this meeting, the committee will receive work from two NIAC working groups to review, deliberate on, and provide further direction to the working groups.
