Information Sharing Environment

The chairman of the Information Sharing Council, U.S. ambassador Thomas McNamara plans to set up an Information Sharing Environment (ISE) by June, 2009 to fight more effectively against the terrorist threat.

Presented to Congress on Nov. 16 by John Negroponte, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), a 160-page report provides for the inclusion of the notion of terrorism information, homeland security information and law enforcement in the ISE. If the draft bill is written into American law - it raises a certain number of questions concerning personal freedoms- it would remove a serious obstacle to information sharing between intelligence agencies and numerous federal and local agencies. But exchanges will only become a reality if standards and the right infrastructure are created to allow them to take place.
