ISE Mission Partners: Department of Homeland Security

Department of Homeland Security Overview

In the decade since September 11th, the federal government has strengthened the connection between collection and analysis on transnational organizations and threats. Terrorism-related information sharing across the intelligence community has greatly improved. Moreover, we have strengthened the ability to convey intelligence on threats to the homeland in a context that is useful and relevant to law enforcement and homeland security officials at the state and local level.

DHS, working closely with the FBI, has re-focused its information sharing and production efforts to better address the needs of state and local governments as well as private sector partners. In addition, DHS continues to improve and expand the information-sharing mechanisms by which it informs relevant communities of threat pictures, vulnerabilities, and potential impacts on local communities.
