DHS Info Sharing

Many say for the government to secure their own networks, it must work more closely with the private sector.

The Homeland Security Department, and other agencies, are now testing out just how that approach might work. That Department is in the middle of several pilot programs to improve how the government and industry share information related to cyber threats.

One goal is to make the sharing of classified information easier, such as an expansion of the post-9/11 Network Fusion Centers used in every state.
