In accordance with section 1016 of Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA), the Information Sharing Environment will be the combination of policies, procedures, and technologies linking the resources (people, systems, databases, and information) of Federal, State, local, and tribal entities and the private sector to facilitate terrorism information sharing, access, and collaboration among users to combat terrorism more effectively.
