Hurd Strengthens National Security With Data Framework Act

WASHINGTON, DC (Ben Caxton) — The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday unanimously approved legislation introduced by Representative Will Hurd that empowers the Department of Homeland Security to improve intelligence information sharing capabilities among its many component agencies. The DHS Data Framework Act codifies an effort at DHS to develop a data framework to incorporate all DHS component agency data related to homeland security, terrorist information, weapons of mass destruction, and national intelligence, into one system, thereby alleviating the current costly, cumbersome process of searching and vetting information against multiple databases with different logins, passwords, and legal restrictions. Hurd, who served as an undercover officer in the CIA for almost a decade, said the new law would allow DHS personnel to both share and vet information in a more efficient manner without undermining the security of sensitive information.
