Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

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.
