Attention security specialists

NCC AIIM Monthly Meeting, Thursday, January 11, 2006

Can ECM Help Prevent Another 9/11?
Speaker: Paul Garrett, Special Assistant to the CIO, U.S. Department of Justice

The events of September 11, 2001 demonstrated to the nation that a terrorist attack could, in fact, happen on US soil. One of the major lessons learned from that disaster was the need for a centralized repository of up-to-date critical information immediately accessible to Law Enforcement agencies across the nation. NIEM, the National Information Exchange Model, is a partnership of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security. It is designed to develop, disseminate and support enterprise-wide information exchange standards and processes that can enable jurisdictions to effectively share critical information in emergency situations, as well as support the day-to-day operations of agencies throughout the nation. NIEM enables information sharing, focusing on information exchanged among organizations as part of their current or intended business practices. Information that is exchanged between agencies can be separated into individual components—for example, information about people, places, material things, and events.

The National Capitol Chapter of AIIM (NCC-AIIM) is proud to welcome Paul Garrett, Special Assistant to the CIO, U.S. Department of Justice, for our January meeting. Mr. Garrett coordinates initiatives to improve information sharing among the nation’s security and law enforcement agencies. Join us to learn how Enterprise Content Management plays a significant role in keeping over 18,000 law enforcement agencies connected and informed.
