Inspector General Officials Want Cyber Threat Sharing System for Federal Agencies; Suzanne Spaulding Comments

CyberCrimeKeyboardInspector General officials have proposed a centralized system for government agencies to share cyber threat information and alert each other to potential attacks, Defense One reported Nov. 5.

Aliya Sternstein writes the IG wants a management database, calling list and communications monitoring system intended to help the departments of Defense and Homeland Security, as well as the National Security Agency share risk data in real time.

“Technologies and processes to improve discoverability and availability of data between and among the cyber operations centers serve as a foundation to the information sharing capability sets,” said Suzanne Spaulding, acting undersecretary of the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate.

The IG’s report showed agencies have disparate systems for disseminating incident reports and response directions, but no centralized system.

IG officials suggest that the centralized threat information sharing be managed by the NCCIC within the DHS, Defense One reports.
