How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The HSINAC provides organizationally independent advice and recommendations to the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security, particularly the Chief Information Officer, Homeland Security Office of the Chief Officer (OCIO) on the requirements of end users within State, Local, Federal, Territorial, Tribal, and International governments and the Private Sector regarding the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN). The scope of advisory support includes: operational requirements necessary for effective information sharing and incident management; compatibility and interoperability between the information network and relevant information networks, databases, and resources of other State, Local, Federal, Tribal, and Private Sector entities; and the security, integrity, and safety of the information network resources and contents. The HSINAC periodically reports, as appropriate, to the CIO on matters within the scope of those advisory functions. The HSINAC serves solely as an advisory body with the goal of providing advice and recommendations predicated upon the requirements of the HSIN community of users.
How is membership balanced?*HSINAC committee members are outstanding within their specialty field and have the degree of experience and depth within their fields that ensures the Director and DHS leadership is informed of the needs and requirements of the information network users and communities of users. Because a balance of perspectives is essential to ensure that HSINAC is truly representative of the HSIN community of users, HSINAC membership expressly includes representatives from State, Tribal, Local, and International governments and the Private Sector, including: • Three members from State, tribal, or local law enforcement;• One member from Federal law enforcement;• Two members from Homeland Security Advisors (HSAs);• Two members from emergency managers;• Two members from fire services;• Two members from public health or agriculture sectors;• Three members from across the identified Critical Infrastructure/Key Resources;• One member representing the Chief, National Guard Bureau;• One member from State or local Chief Information Security Officer or cyber-related position within State or local government;• One member from local, county/parish, or city government;• One member from tribal government;• One member from any discipline with relevant expertise in State, local, tribal, or territorial homeland security; and• One international member representing international law enforcement and/or security agencies in active partnership with the Department of Homeland Security.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Number of Meetings per Year - 2 or 3 as needed. Meetings are scheduled to coincide with policy and operational decisions under consideration with respect to development of the HSIN platform.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The HSINAC is an independent vehicle for the HSIN community of users to communicate with the Department regarding HSIN and Departmental policies affecting their use of HSIN. The HSINAC serves as a vital “people to technology” bridge between the Department and its HSIN stakeholders. The HSINAC is free to inquire into pending information network and program activities and is expected to provide recommendations reflecting the input of the entire community of HSIN users. Maintaining a viable and active HSINAC ensures that the partnerships developed through HSIN are able to leverage all available technological tools to best support homeland security information sharing among DHS and its diverse mission partners.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A
Recommendation RemarksActing Secretary Elaine Duke terminated the HSINAC via Termination Memo dated September 26, 2017.
