Public-Private Sector Intelligence Coordination   [open pdf - 444KB]

"In July 2004, President Bush asked the NIAC to study whether the Federal Government and its private sector partners could improve the way the Intelligence Community (IC) coordinates with critical infrastructure owners and operators. In response, the NIAC created the Intelligence Coordination Working Group. Based on the Working Group's inputs, this is the Council's report. The Working Group focused principally on the way information flows between the IC and the private sector. Below are the two questions that governed the Working Group's approach throughout the process: In what ways can the IC help critical infrastructure owners and operators and in what ways can critical infrastructure owners and operators help the IC? The Working Group interviewed chief executives from a cross-section of the critical infrastructure industries to discuss their views on improving information sharing between the private sector and IC. These interviews examined the issues of information sharing within the broader context of a CEO's role in managing business and operational risks in the aftermath of September 11. Following 9/11, nearly all CEOs examined the ways in which they managed strategic risk, focusing especially on the adequacy of their existing security measures and the gaps in coverage."
