DHS Auditors Want US-CERT to Share More with Intl Partners

The Department of Homeland Security‘s inspector general issued a report last August finding inconsistent communication with international partners in cybersecurity, Fierce Government IT reports.

According to David Perera’s report, auditors found the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team is not forging strong relationships with their international allies.

Auditors want strong communication between US-CERT and its foreign counterparts for continued working relationship among the agencies.

Foreign CERT officials expressed sentiments about US-CERT’s slow or lack of response to auditors and one said he would like to ask US-CERT to share its threat information. Perera reported.

However, DHS officials believe that the data is proprietary and cannot be shared due to potential effects on U.S. security.

Rand Beers, head of DHS’ national protection and programs directorate, said US-CERT already allocates enough resources to international collaboration.
