DoD, DHS Team for Cyber-Security

The Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
have agreed to work closer to combat cyber-threats to military and
civilian computer systems and networks. A new memorandum of agreement was reached to coordinate and improve efforts to secure the country’s cyber-infrastructure, according to the document (PDF).

As part of the agreement, DoD cyber-analysts will work hand-in-hand
with DHS to support the National Cybersecurity and
Communications Integration Center. The agreement also provides
a full-time senior DHS leader to the National Security Agency, as
well as a support team made up of DHS legal specialists and other
personnel. It also calls for the NSA to arrange a "Cryptologic
Services Group" at the NCCIC at DHS to work with DHS and support the
National Cyber Incident Response Plan.
