American security agencies are addressing the problem of Internet security. A new division of the US Department of Homeland has been bought to life just for this problem.

The Department of Homeland Security was set up after the Sept. 11th attacks. It co-ordinates the work of other US security services.

The cyber security division is divided into 3 parts. One will check how secure government computer systems are from criminals, the second will be a rapid response centre, and the third will promote net safety.
