Not usually appropriate for this list, I know, but SANS is involved  
in assisting the Red Cross with relief efforts for the Gulf Coast.

> A longer introduction to NewsBites this week, for a good cause:
> The American Red Cross needs help in areas that NewsBites readers know
> well. SANS Internet Storm Center is leading the search for technically
> savvy volunteers who can help in two ways - at the shelters in
> implementing Windows and Cisco systems for the volunteers and people
> living there, and at Red Cross headquarters in the Washington DC area
> to improve the implementation of security software tools that have  
> been
> implemented but are not fully exploited.  Here's how you can help.
> 1. People who live near the shelters (or who could get there and who
> have family/friends with whom you could stay), and who have lots of
> experience deploying Windows XP and/or Cisco systems, please register
> your willingness to help at
> http://isc.sans.org/volunteers
> The Red Cross will contact you directly.
> 2. People in the Washington DC area (or who could get here quickly)  
> and
> would volunteer to help, and who have substantial experience with any
> of the following:
>    -- tuning Cisco IDS
>    -- tuning NetIQ Manager
>    -- tuning McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator
> please do two things:
> a. register at http://isc.sans.org/volunteers and
> b. send me an email at paller at sans.org telling me which tool you know
> well and how available and close you are so I can set up a contact for
> you.
> SANS is also donating $100,000 to the Red Cross, and we learned today
> that at least one leading security vendor, TippingPoint, has  
> offered to
> give the Red Cross the equipment they need to protect their networks -
> without asking for compensation.
> If you know of people or companies in the IT or security field who are
> trying to make a difference in the recovery effort, please let us know
> what you or they are doing (Email paller at sans.org).
