Mandating a person
here is a single ideological current running through a seemingly disparate collection of noxious modern political and scientific movements, ranging from militarism, imperialism, racism, xenophobia, and radical environmentalism, to socialism, Nazism, and totalitarian communism.
This is the ideology of antihumanism: the belief that the human race is a horde of vermin whose unconstrained aspirations and appetites endanger the natural order, and that tyrannical measures are necessary to constrain humanity.
DHS works with cybersecurity organizations from across the federal government to gain access to a broad range of sensitive and classified cyber threat information.
DHS develops indicators based on this information and shares them with qualified Commercial Service Providers (CSPs), thus enabling them to better protect their customers.
DHS maintains operational-level coordination with the MS-ISAC through the presence of MS-ISAC analysts in the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) to coordinate directly with its own 24x7 operations center that connects with SLTT government stakeholders on cybersecurity threats and incidents.
In addition to the MS-ISAC, representatives of the Communications ISAC maintain a presence at DHS through the NCCIC’s National Coordinating Center for Communications (NCC), with resident members from the nation’s major communications carriers on site.
The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and the Aviation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (A-ISAC) also maintain a presence within the NCCIC.
Like Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), the purpose of Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs) is to gather, analyze, and disseminate cyber threat information, but unlike ISACs, ISAOs are not sector-affiliated.
As the lead federal department for the protection of critical infrastructure and the furthering of cybersecurity, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has developed and implemented numerous information sharing programs.
Executive Order 13691 – Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing calls for the development of ISAOs in order to promote better cybersecurity information sharing between the private sector and government, and enhance collaboration and information sharing amongst the private sector.
DHS is responsible for the execution of Executive Order 13691.
The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) Program is an information-protection program that enhances voluntary information sharing between infrastructure owners and operators and the government.
PCII protections mean that homeland security partners can be confident that sharing their information with the government will not expose sensitive or proprietary data.
Its role is threefold: DHS will select, through an open and competitive process, a non-governmental organization to serve as the ISAO Standards Organization, which will identify a set of voluntary guidelines for the creation and functioning of ISAOs; DHS will engage in continuous, collaborative, and inclusive coordination with ISAOs via its NCCIC; and DHS will develop a more efficient means for granting clearances to private sector individuals who are members of an ISAO via a designated critical infrastructure protection program.
