Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has said DHS has released a document that aims to guide federal agencies and industry on how to share cyber threat information with the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center.

Johnson said in a statement posted Tuesday it issued the guidelines with the Justice Department in compliance with the requirements of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015.

DHS also released interim guidelines that detail how the department will carry out privacy assessments of received cyber threat data from other federal agencies and companies, he noted.

He cited that DHS has made changes to the Automated Indicator Sharing platform that agencies and industry use to share network threat indicators in real time.

Johnson also urged the private sector to help improve the AIS system and provide feedback as DHS works to craft the final guidelines for cyber threat information sharing.
