Abstract:

Strengthening our nation s ability to share terrorism information constitutes a cornerstone of our national strategy to protect the American people and our institutions and to defeat terrorists and their support networks at home and abroad. Recognizing the need to go beyond individual solutions to create an environment the aggregation of legal, policy, cultural, organizational, and technological conditions for improving information sharing, Congress passed and the President signed the landmark Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 IRTPA. The Act requires the President to establish an Information Sharing Environment ISE, for the sharing of terrorism information in a manner consistent with national security and with applicable legal standards relating to privacy and civil liberties. It also requires designation of a Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment PM-ISE. The PM-ISE, in consultation with the interagency Information Sharing Council ISC, is charged with planning and overseeing the ISEs implementation and management. Among other duties, the PM-ISE is responsible for assisting the President in submitting to Congress an ISE Implementation Plan ISE IP that addresses eleven requirements set forth in Section 1016e of IRTPA.
