The Homeland Security Office is evaluating applications to let agencies analyze links and relationships among information sets without breaching privacy laws or sparking interagency turf battles.

    Steve Cooper, the office's CIO, said yesterday the goal of the current tests is to validate a data-sharing concept. The premise is that to better track information on possible security threats, agencies must at minimum share information about their data, he said at the Industry Advisory Council's Executive Leadership Conference.

    But fear of breaking privacy laws and the sense of ownership many agencies exhibit toward their data often keep the government from consolidating or even tracking information in useful ways, Cooper said.
