Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN)

HSIN Log InThe Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) is a platform used to safely share Sensitive but Unclassified information. It enables Federal, State, Local, Tribal, Territorial, International and Private Sector homeland security partners to achieve their missions through information sharing.

HSIN supports: 

  • Daily operations, such as those at the National Operations Center
  • Planned events, including events like the Kentucky Derby and MLB All-Star Week
  • Incident response in cases such as the Boston Marathon Bombing and the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.

The network provides a collaborative workspace to maximize operational efficiency. Through experience, HSIN has created a codified tool, known as the Standardized Incident Management Dashboard Template, which allows users to set up best practice capabilities in seconds to support public safety and event management.
