How cyberthreat information-sharing practices between government and industry develop in the next few years will set the tone for that collaboration for decades to come, said White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Michael Daniel. In the next three to four years, “we will be defining how a lot of these rela- tionships will operate for the next 50,” Daniel said at an Atlantic Coun- cil event in February. Given that most cyber-related infrastructure is privately owned, “there is almost no other issue in the national security and the eco- nomic security space...that is shared in that same manner.” The key role of the private sector in cybersecurity “means that we are having to chart...some new ways of interacting between the government and the private sector that don’t fall neatly into traditional regulatory or contractual categories that we’ve had,” he added. “And so as a result, we’re struggling, in many ways, to fig- ure out what those relationships are going to be.” A recent executive order seeks to flesh out those relationships by encouraging exchanges beyond estab- lished, sector-specific information sharing and analysis centers. Daniel also echoed a common The new frontier for information sharing is the cost of a proposed DOD-wide license agreement with VMware that is being protested as unduly restrictive to competition $1.6B Trending warning from cybersecurity experts that information sharing is just a means to an end, not a solution unto itself. Different types of information sharing are needed for active cyber defense and situational awareness, he added, without elaborating on those methods. In addition, a newly announced Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center will free up cybersecurity spe- cialists at the National Security Coun- cil to evaluate and coordinate intelli- gence and get them out of the business of interpreting raw signals, Daniel said. “There’s a degree of integration that’s occurring on my staff that real- ly should not be occurring,” he said. “It needs to come into us that way. I think that [CTIIC] will be a great force multiplier in this space.” The center is modeled on the National Counterterrorism Center and will operate under the authority of the Office of the Director of National Intel- ligence. It will have about 50 staffers to start, about half of whom will be permanent employees of CTIIC and half detailees from the intelligence agencies that will be its customers. “At least in our conception right now, the staffing of the center will be government because it’s primarily not designed to interact with the private sector on a daily, ongoing basis,” Dan- iel said. Sector-specific knowledge will come from cybersecurity specialists at the FBI and Department of Homeland Security who have experience work- ing with the private sector. “That’s one of the issues that we do need to con- sider — how the CTIIC’s knowledge base and capabilities remain relevant and fresh and up-to-date,” Daniel said. Primarily, CTIIC is being conceived of as a “government back-office orga- nization designed to enable the centers to do their job better and enable the White House to do a better coordina- tion function with the agencies,” he added. — Sean Lyngaas and Adam Mazmanian FCW CALENDAR IT modernization The ModernGov Summit, presented by FCW, will feature insights into portfolio management, proactive analytics, business strategy and more.
