All of this begs the question, what specifically would you do if the alert
level went to red or yellow?  Would you broadcast the change to customers,
place disaster recover teams on stand-by or stand-down, implement an
expanded ACL, etc.?  Seriously, I'm interested in a response to this.
Regarding your suggestion of a simple place to poll, I can probably get this
implemented if there is sufficient interest.  I'm reviewing response plans
from others now. If you care to provide them, I'd be interested in comparing

 But, until elections 2004, the "FUD" field is hardcoded to "High".

 However, if there are changes to the -=actual=- dhs.gov status,

Would you like to subscribe to the notification list ?

Is anyone running an automated Terror Alert system that's
real time with the DHS?

Ok, that was interesting. :)

The diving thing is my fun stuff. I'm actually working in
Security. :)

I was writing a little tool that scanned their page for the alert
image name change, but that's subject to them making changes to
their site and the images are multi layer graphics, etc. etc.

I'm going to call them and see if they can offer
a place to poll something simple that we can trip
changes off in the NOC.

If anyone does have some insight to anything they are
doing, or a good contact number for the DHS webite, please
ping me in email and I'll follow up if I find something
or get them to do something.
