Our Vision and Mission, Clearly DefinedPosted by Kshemendra Paul, ISE Program Manager on Thursday, May 24, 2012
In recent conversations, our stakeholders have asked us to clearly define who we are and what we’re trying to accomplish. You want to hear the high-level strategy of where the ISE is going, how to help, and how to participate. With that in mind, I’m proud to release our newly clarified vision and mission:
Our vision is national security through responsible information sharing.
Our three-part mission and related objectives are:
Advance responsible information sharing to further counterterrorism and homeland security missions
- Innovate and standardize information sharing capabilities nationwide to support decision making more effectively and efficiently
- Transform the domestic information sharing architecture to better identify and respond to threats
- Build and deliver capabilities to manage, integrate, and make sense of vast stores of information
Improve nationwide decision making by transforming information ownership to stewardship
- Achieve greater interoperability through standards-based acquisition
- Drive responsible information sharing by interconnecting existing networks and systems with strong identity, access, and discovery capabilities
- Standardize, reuse, and automate information sharing policies and agreements with strong protection of privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties
Promote partnerships across federal, state, local, and tribal governments, the private sector, and internationally
- Build organizational capacity through engagement, coordination, training, and management support
- Encourage cultural change through communities of action
The PM-ISE, as the national office for responsible information sharing, coordinates the policy and strategy to realize the vision and accomplish the missions laid out above. The vision, mission, and role of my office align with the authorities set out in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, Section 1016, the 2007 National Strategy for Information Sharing, EO 13388 and 13587, and other guidance from our Executive Branch leadership.
