  • Task Force Says Government Has Not Yet Taken Advantage of America's Technology Expertise to Combat Terrorism | Markle | Advancing America's Future
    nation s leading experts on national security who served in the Carter Reagan Bush and Clinton Administrations as well as leading experts on information technology and civil liberties calls on the President to Set the goal of creating the network issue clear government wide policy guidelines for the government s collection and use of domestic information including private sector information about U S persons clarify the respective roles of DHS the Terrorist Threat Integration Center TTIC the FBI and other federal agencies involved with collection and analysis of domestic terrorism information The Task Force concluded that until the government gives priority to breaking down its institutional barriers to cooperation and presents the public with a cohesive plan for the network the public will not understand how private sector information is a critical part of the network Further government wide guidelines are needed that clearly define the security interests in research into data mining of private sector information and that provide controls to address the privacy implications of such programs in order to establish public trust in these programs In its report the Task Force notes that it is essential that the government shed its Cold War culture in order to properly address the threat the nation faces from terrorism During the Cold War the use of information was dominated by a culture of classification and tight limitations on access in which information was shared only on a need to know basis However the events of September 11 have starkly demonstrated the dangers associated with the failure to share information not only within the federal government but also between the federal government on the one hand and state and local governments and the private sector on the other The threat today requires unprecedented speed in the way the government collects shares and acts on information To deal with this threat information needs to be tailored to facilitate decision making and action at all levels not only by the President but also the police officers on the street Our Task Force s fundamental objective was to identify the technological tools and infrastructure the policies and the processes necessary to link different levels of government and the private sector so that important information can be shared among the people who need it as rapidly as possible within a system of guidelines and technologies designed to protect civil liberties said Michael Vatis executive director of the Task Force The government has caused confusion by creating multiple new agencies without clearly defining their respective roles and responsibilities The SHARE network that the Task Force has proposed which it recommends be overseen by DHS in the first stage could be built using existing technology Technology products that are currently available would allow information to be both protected and shared through the use of published directories listing who has relevant information and permissioning rules to determine whom can access the information Currently available technology would also allow for the authentication for subscribers to the directories and the
