The Defense and Homeland Security departments have launched an 
initiative to share analysts and coordinate their cyber operations. In a 
joint statement co-signed by Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Homeland 
Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the two departments announced that 
they will immediately formalize joint processes to protect national 
infrastructure and computer networks, as well as clearly delineate their 
respective roles and responsibilities.

A key part of the agreement calls for Pentagon cyber analysts to be 
embedded in DHS to better support the National Cybersecurity and 
Communications Integration Center. The agreement also calls for the 
establishment of a director of cybersecurity coordination within DHS who 
will work closely with the National Security Agency. Supporting this 
senior DHS official will be a team of department privacy, civil 
liberties and legal personnel.

Among the roles and responsibilities delineated in the memorandum, the 
office of DHS' director of cybersecurity coordination will be located at 
the NSA but will not be a part of that agency=E2=80=99s command chain. The 
director will also serve as the DHS senior cybersecurity representative 
to the U.S. Cyber Command.
