NIEM in Canada: Standards in International Information Sharing

A few weeks ago, I joined Canadian government representatives in promoting NIEM adoption (www.niem.gov | www.niem.ca) to their law enforcement and public safety communities. NIEM is a model for information sharing technical standards, and it has had strong adoption here in the U.S. among our law enforcement, public safety, justice, and homeland security communities.

Standards: Enabling National Security

Interested in data standards? Don't miss the Workshop on Info Sharing and Safeguarding Standards, or WIS3, on December 5th, 2011. Learn more. UPDATE: Follow the live Twitter stream of WIS3 coverage at #WIS3!

A few weeks ago, I had the honor to meet representatives from the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC) to discuss the need for a common framework for information exchanges among agencies. Differing parts of our government use different information exchange frameworks, which include different standards for sharing information. This is a problem, as the news events of the past few weeks clearly illustrate.

Association for Enterprise Information (AFEI) to host industry talks on next steps for whole-of-gov identity and access mgmt

A number of foundational technologies are essential to building a robust information sharing environment (ISE). One of these key technology areas is whole-of-government identity and access management because the threats to our nation transcend a single agency or department’s scope. Consistent whole-of-government identity and access management helps enable interoperability and security across the enterprise architectures built and maintained by agencies and departments.
