Chapter Summary

In September 2005 the President of the United States approved nation's first-ever National Strategy for Maritime Security (NSMS), a comprehensive strategy intended to integrate all federal government maritime security programs and initiatives into a cohesive national effort. Three principles provide overarching guidance to NSMS?(1) preserving freedom of the seas; and (2) facilitating and defending commerce?the movement of desirable goods and people across the U.S. borders; while (3) screening out dangerous people and material. The purpose of this chapter is to catalog what is working well, what needs improvement and why, e.g., are the barriers to information sharing legal, policy, cultural, technological, or some combination? It discusses how information sharing mandates of MDA and GMII Plans need to be connected to other, post 9/11 information sharing initiatives, Information Sharing Environment to create an environment for sharing terrorism-related information, a requirement established by Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA).
