Readers, we are going to develop a contact page for you to use when trying to troubleshoot an Internet issue or to report a situation to the right authority. To do so, we want to point to "directory" pages where other groups have already vetted a certain membership. For example, see these groups:
FIRST (Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams)
Terena (Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association)
AP-CERT (Asia Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team)
If you know of other sites with vetted members working to keep the Internet safe, send them to us via our contact form. We'll update this diary entry as they come in, then we'll build the permanent page in the next day or so.
By the way, CERT teams are only part of the solution. Lists of law enforcement groups that can investigate cyber crime, lists of ISP NOCs, and lists of consumer protection groups are also helpful.

UPDATE 1535 GMT 21 Jan 07:
Thanks to everybody who has sent links so far. Here's a few that we have received:
EEIC (Electronic Evidence Information Center)
APWG (Anti-Phishing Working Group)
IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Center)
Remember that we're looking for lists of sites, not the sites themselves. However, if you know of a site that may not be on somebody's vetted list please send it to us.
