Command, Control and Interoperability Division

Definition/Scope: The Command, Control, and Interoperability Division (CID), division within the DHS, through a practitioner-driven approach, creates and deploys information resources to enable seamless and secure interactions among homeland security stakeholders. A practitioner-driven approach is defined as a process where the needs of end users drive the creation of information resources. Information resources include standards, frameworks, tools, and technologies. Enabling seamless and secure interactions means enhancing the ability to communicate, share, visualize, analyze, and protect information. Some of CIDs users are all local, tribal, state, federal, international, and private entities engaged in homeland security and any federal agencies that plan for, detect, and respond to all hazards; and private-sector partners that own, operate, and maintain the nation’s cyber infrastructure.. While working with federal agencies, the CID division works to strengthen communications interoperability, improve Internet security and integrity, and accelerate the development of automated capabilities to help identify potential national threats. CID is organized into five program areas: Basic/Futures Research; Communication, Interoperability and Compatibility; Cyber Security; Knowledge Management Tools; and Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Investigative Technologies.
