Committee leaders await findings on info sharing network

From FCW:

The House Homeland Security Committee’s Democratic leadership remains concerned about the Homeland Security Department’s effort to overhaul its platform for sharing sensitive but unclassified information with state and local authorities, dubbed HSIN Next Gen (HSIN = Homeland Security Information Network).

In July, the chairman, Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and a senior member, Jane Harman (D-CA), asked DHS to suspend work on the program until requirements for the platform’s users had been defined and validated.

In two letters to DHS leadership dated Sept. 23 and Oct. 9, Thompson requested the Homeland Security Information Network Advisory Council’s findings for oversight purposes. As of Friday morning (Oct. 17), the committee had not received them.
