wiredmikey (1824622) writes "President Obama on Wednesday released a national strategy designed to balance the sharing of information with those who need it to keep the country safe, while protecting the same data from those who would use it to cause harm. "The National Strategy for Information Sharing and Safeguarding" outlines how the government will attempt to responsibly share and protect data that enhances national security and protects the American people. The national strategy will define how the federal government and its assorted departments and agencies share their data. Agencies can also share services and work towards data and network interoperability to be more efficient, the President said.

The President aimed to address concerns over Privacy by noting, "This strategy makes it clear that the individual privacy, civil rights and civil liberties of United States persons must be — and will be — protected."

More on the strategy is available here and the full document is available here in PDF format from the White House website."
