        (A) the existence, organization, capabilities, plans, intentions, vulnerabilities, means of finance or material support, or activities of foreign or international terrorist groups or individuals, or of domestic groups or individuals involved in transnational terrorism;

        (B) threats posed by such groups or individuals to the United States, United States persons, or United States interests, or to those of other nations;

        (C) communications of or by such groups or individuals; or

        (D) groups or individuals reasonably believed to be assisting or associated with such groups or individuals.

      (4) NETWORK- The term ‘Network’ means the Information Sharing Network described under subsection (c).

    (b) FINDINGS- Consistent with the report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, Congress makes the following findings:

      (1) The effective use of information, from all available sources, is essential to the fight against terror and the protection of our homeland. The biggest impediment to all-source analysis, and to a greater likelihood of ‘connecting the dots’, is resistance to sharing information.

      (2) The United States Government has access to a vast amount of information, including not only traditional intelligence but also other government databases, such as those containing customs or immigration information. However, the United States Government has a weak system for processing and using the information it has.

      (3) In the period preceding September 11, 2001, there were instances of potentially helpful information that was available but that no person knew to ask for; information that was distributed only in compartmented channels, and information that was requested but could not be shared.

      (4) Current security requirements nurture over-classification and excessive compartmentalization of information among agencies. Each agency’s incentive structure opposes sharing, with risks, including criminal, civil, and administrative sanctions, but few rewards for sharing information.

      (5) The current system, in which each intelligence agency has its own security practices, requires a demonstrated ‘need to know’ before sharing. This approach assumes that it is possible to know, in advance, who will need to use the information. An outgrowth of the cold war, such a system implicitly assumes that the risk of inadvertent disclosure outweighs the benefits of wider sharing. Such assumptions are no longer appropriate. Although counterintelligence concerns are still real, the costs of not sharing information are also substantial. The current ‘need-to-know’ culture of information protection needs to be replaced with a ‘need-to-share’ culture of integration.

      (6) A new approach to the sharing of intelligence and homeland security information is urgently needed. An important conceptual model for a new ‘trusted information network’ is the Systemwide Homeland Analysis and Resource Exchange (SHARE) Network proposed by a task force of leading professionals assembled by the Markle Foundation and described in reports issued in October 2002 and December 2003.

      (7) No single agency can create a meaningful information sharing system on its own. Alone, each agency can only modernize stovepipes, not replace them. Presidential leadership is required to bring about governmentwide change.

    (c) INFORMATION SHARING NETWORK-

      (1) ESTABLISHMENT- The President shall establish a trusted information network and secure information sharing environment to promote sharing of intelligence and homeland security information in a manner consistent with national security and the protection of privacy and civil liberties, and based on clearly defined and consistently applied policies and procedures, and valid investigative, analytical or operational requirements.

      (2) ATTRIBUTES- The Network shall promote coordination, communication and collaboration of people and information among all relevant Federal departments and agencies, State, tribal, and local authorities, and relevant private sector entities, including owners and operators of critical infrastructure, by using policy guidelines and technologies that support--

        (A) a decentralized, distributed, and coordinated environment that connects existing systems where appropriate and allows users to share information among agencies, between levels of government, and, as appropriate, with the private sector;

        (B) the sharing of information in a form and manner that facilitates its use in analysis, investigations and operations;

        (C) building upon existing systems capabilities currently in use across the Government;

        (D) utilizing industry best practices, including minimizing the centralization of data and seeking to use common tools and capabilities whenever possible;

        (E) employing an information access management approach that controls access to data rather than to just networks;

        (F) facilitating the sharing of information at and across all levels of security by using policy guidelines and technologies that support writing information that can be broadly shared;

        (G) providing directory services for locating people and information;

        (H) incorporating protections for individuals’ privacy and civil liberties;

        (I) incorporating strong mechanisms for information security and privacy and civil liberties guideline enforcement in order to enhance accountability and facilitate oversight, including--

          (i) multifactor authentication and access control;

          (ii) strong encryption and data protection;

          (iii) immutable audit capabilities;

          (iv) automated policy enforcement;

          (v) perpetual, automated screening for abuses of network and intrusions; and

          (vi) uniform classification and handling procedures;

        (J) compliance with requirements of applicable law and guidance with regard to the planning, design, acquisition, operation, and management of information systems; and

        (K) permitting continuous system upgrades to benefit from advances in technology while preserving the integrity of stored data.

      (2) establish electronic directory services to assist in locating in the Federal Government intelligence and homeland security information and people with relevant knowledge about intelligence and homeland security information; and

      (3) conduct a review of relevant current Federal agency capabilities, including--

        (A) a baseline inventory of current Federal systems that contain intelligence or homeland security information;

        (B) the money currently spent to maintain those systems; and

        (C) identification of other information that should be included in the Network.

    (e) GUIDELINES AND REQUIREMENTS- As soon as possible, but in no event later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the President shall--

      (1) in consultation with the Executive Council--

        (B) on classification policy and handling procedures across Federal agencies, including commonly accepted processing and access controls;

      (2) in consultation with the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board established under section 211, issue guidelines that--

        (A) protect privacy and civil liberties in the development and use of the Network; and

        (B) shall be made public, unless, and only to the extent that, nondisclosure is clearly necessary to protect national security; and

      (3) require the heads of Federal departments and agencies to promote a culture of information sharing by--

        (A) reducing disincentives to information sharing, including overclassification of information and unnecessary requirements for originator approval; and

      (2) a delineation of the roles of the Federal departments and agencies that will participate in the development of the Network, including identification of any agency that will build the infrastructure needed to operate and manage the Network (as distinct from the individual agency components that are to be part of the Network), with the delineation of roles to be consistent with--

        (A) the authority of the National Intelligence Director under this Act to set standards for information sharing and information technology throughout the intelligence community; and

        (B) the authority of the Secretary of Homeland Security and the role of the Department of Homeland Security in coordinating with State, tribal, and local officials and the private sector;
