The Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) is the designated DHS solution for sharing Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) information and intelligence within DHS and all of its partners. The HSIN FY18 Annual Report—available for viewing and download here—provides a comprehensive overview about how HSIN supports interagency and private sector partners achieve mission success. Some of the year’s achievements include:
- Preventing Terrorism – New functionality for HSIN Exchange allows personnel across all fusion centers and the Terrorist Screening Center to contribute to a larger common operating picture.
- Securing the Border – Operation Stonegarden uses HSIN to facilitate support for more than 150 individual border security operations and $250 million of grant funding to non-federal partners annually.
- Intercepting Illegal Drugs – Memphis BEST members share information about individuals who ship and receive fentanyl and other illegal drugs, including information on shippers, receivers and transshipment points.
- Keeping Schools Safe – The Georgia School and Campus Safety initiative bridges communication gaps and provides a secure, central location for all jurisdictions to share school safety and intelligence information.
- Combatting Criminal Gangs – The Georgia Gang Intelligence community facilitates investigations, makes prosecutions more effective, helps protect officers, and maximizes the effectiveness of limited resources.
- Maintaining Security at Events – HSIN supported the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Infrastructure Visualization Program at the Indy 500, providing 360-degree images of 60 areas at the venue.
HSIN’s support of partners is made possible through the dedication of the entire HSIN team and its technology, which earned a 2018 Government Innovation Award from GCN. To learn more, we invite you to view the Annual Report. To request HSIN support for your mission, contact the HSIN Outreach team.
