Information Sharing: A U.S. Government Mandate

Thanks to David Fauth for calling my attention to this news release from the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence: New Policy Makes Information Sharing a Factor in Employees’ Performance Reviews.

It’s certainly a step in the right direction. But what will determine the success of this effort is the implementation of Information Sharing Environment to connect federal, state, local, and tribal governments, the private sector, and foreign allies. The security challenges alone are daunting, but I’m just as concerned about the challenges of getting the right information to the right people. Anyone who thinks that search is 90% solved should think about problems like these!
