DOJ: Better information sharing could help fend off cyber attacks

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKOW) -- The inspector general of the United States Department of Justice says an improvement in information sharing between the FBI and other law enforcement and intelligence agencies could better help ward off cyber attacks.

The inspector's report pointed out findings from the 9/11 Commission that said information sharing between agencies was inadequate prior to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

In the IG's report, it was also noted that some representatives on the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force were often asked to leave meetings that focus on cyber threats, even though that task force was created to share information.
