from Governing's Managing Technology Conference in Seattle

"Fusion centers" have developed over the past few years as places for local, state and federal law enforcement and homeland security officials to share intelligence information across jurisdictional lines. The silos are being busted.

But an interesting concern emerged out of a session on data security led by Major General Timothy J. Lowenberg, the State of Washington's top homeland security official. Fusion centers aren't very good at talking to one another, which, of course, places limits on the sharing of information.
