Homeland Security Information Network-Intelligence (HSIN-Intel) Partner Products Fact Sheet   [open pdf - 885KB]

This fact sheet describes the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) and how it is used nationwide with other government organizations. The following is from the overview: " HSIN is made up of a growing network of sites, called Communities of Interest (COI). COIs are organized by state organizations, federal organizations, or mission areas, such as emergency management, law enforcement, critical sectors, and intelligence. Users can securely share information and products within their communities or with other communities as needed. HSIN provides secure, real-time collaboration tools, including a virtual meeting space, instant messaging, and document sharing. HSIN also allows partners to work together instantly, regardless of their location, to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate. HSIN-Intel is a COI focused on supporting the collaboration of fusion centers within the National Network of Fusion Centers, including the sharing of products and information. It is the primary vehicle for fusion centers and other key stakeholders to share sensitive but unclassified information. HSIN-Intel is a chartered and vetted community of intelligence analysts from the homeland security, intelligence, and law enforcement communities at all levels of government who share homeland security-related information and analyses on a daily basis in order to address threats to the homeland. In order to make HSIN-Intel even more robust and user-friendly, a new section was created--called Partner Products-- that allows users to easily find and access valuable products and resources, including analytic products, situational awareness products, guidebooks, and other critical resources, many of which were previously unavailable. The lists on the following pages include current resources available on the Partner Products Web pages."
