Planners are increasingly engaged to think about security in the built environment. But as creators and users of a vast array of public (and sometimes private) data, planners also need to be thoughtful of cyber security. This webcast will feature COIN, (www.CountyInnovation.us) a national information sharing infrastructure that is the result of a private – public partnership between NACo (National Association of Counties) and Solutionize. COIN members span local government officials and many lines of business in local government. Usage includes a large constituency of County Engineers - for example, using COIN to manage committees and private information sharing. COIN launched a Cyber portal in summer 2015, and recently joined Dept. Homeland Security in a collaboration program between COIN and State Associations of Counties for the syndication of CyberSecurity information down to the lowest level of local government. Due to the recent tragedy in San Bernardino, COIN and US Communities (a leading local government procurement cooperative) have agreed to collaborate to extend the Cyber portal for physical security. Already, leading vendors have engaged to support the launch in January 2016. This will result in a COIN Security ‘channel’ with ongoing information sharing and online programming to showcase security solutions.
