2 2 What is HSIN? A sensitive, but unclassified environment to share information The capability to store, search, and retrieve sensitive documents The capability to receive DHS- generated broadcasts and narrowcasts Access to a suite of common services at greatly reduced cost Knowledge base for sector access. Allows creation of sub council working groups Extend reach of alerts, warnings, advisories, while tailoring delivery System Architecture Collaboration HSIN Portal Alert/Warning Information Dissemination The capability to conduct real-time dialogue Real-time problem- solving and planning within and across communities Announced by Secretary Ridge, March 2004 Operated by DHS/National Operations Center (NOC) NOC's primary suite of tools for information sharing, coordination, planning, mitigation, and response.

Additionally, the Department and Sector-Specific Agencies shall collaborate with the private sector and continue to support sector-coordinating mechanisms: (a) to identify, prioritize, and coordinate the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources; and (b) to facilitate sharing of information about physical and cyber threats, vulnerabilities, incidents, potential protective measures, and best practices. HSIN-CS is one of DHSs mechanisms in which it fulfills its obligations as stated in HSPD-7 HSIN Strategic and Conceptual Framework
