Information Sharing Slow at DHS

The Homeland Security Department should speed up how quickly it shares information about cyber and physical threats facing critical infrastructure sectors, according to half the respondents in a Government Accountability Office review.

During the lag time between when Homeland Security learns of threat information and when it passes that information along to industry, that information grows less valuable, those industry representatives said, and sometimes, by the time it arrives, it’s already old news.

Those criticisms came from three out of six industry representatives GAO interviewed, all of whom sit on coordinating councils that establish information sharing processes between their industries and the government.
