A new policy for sharing classified information among federal, state, local, tribal and private sector groups has been established by executive order. The order doesn't override previous policies but was instead designed to make the process for sharing national security information more formalized. Paul Wormeli is the executive director of the IJIS Institute, which represents companies that work with the government on information sharing. He joins the Federal Drive to discuss how much more sharing is likely to happen because of the order.
