Amanda Nguyen, Director of Strategy, CHIEF

The Homeland Security Department is one step closer toward getting its own social media group. The Social Media Working Group Act amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002. It already has approval from the House and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The group would meet twice a year to plan how DHS can use social media in disaster response. Amanda Nguyen, director of strategy at CHIEF and former director of Web communications at the Agriculture Department's Office of Communications, tells In Depth with Francis Rose what DHS group should consider.

Sharla Rausch, Former Deputy Director, Office of National Labs, DHS

Homeland Security Department Secretary Jeh Johnson says his agency can't move forward unless it stops talking about low morale. Sharla Rausch, chair of the Women in Homeland Security STEM Committee, is former deputy director of the Office of National Laboratories for DHS. When she was at the agency, she told her colleagues, "It all boils down to people." But in a piece for Security Debrief, she says rearranging a few of those words more accurately describes how federal employees are feeling today and not in a good way. She tells In Depth with Francis Rose why national security boils down to understanding your employees.

Homeland Security is about to launch a new approach to make cybersecurity information sharing easier. In the next couple of months, the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (U.S. CERT) will begin using two new technical specifications called STICKS and TAXI. Both will help DHS automate how cyber information is shared between federal agencies and business. Brad Nix is the deputy director of U.S. CERT. He tells executive editor Jason Miller how DHS is putting these two standards to work to improve cybersecurity information sharing.
