Col. Jeff Schilling (Ret.), Chief Security Officer, FireHost

Information sharing is a two-way street with road hazards in both directions. President Barack Obama held the first White House Cybersecurity Summit last week and issued an Executive Order with hopes of fostering a more open exchange between government and the private sector. Jeff Schilling is the chief security officer for FireHost. He once directed the global Security Operations Center under U.S. Army Cyber Command and has seen the challenges from both sides. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he pointed out cybersecurity was only one of the topics the glitterati actually discussed.

That's the problem the National Institute of Justice is tackling with its new Data Visualization Challenge. Dr. Nancy Merritt, senior policy advisor at NIJ, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more details on the challenge.

Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

Kshemendra Paul is the program manager of the Information Sharing Environment.
