Wasatch Digital IQ.

Wasatch Digital IQ magazine's latest issue is now online with an article on Governor Mike Leavitt and his role in homeland security.  In their interview with the Governor, he states,

Homeland security will be primarily conducted by people who have another full-time job. Their role in homeland security only comes into play in rare and remote circumstances. The county sheriff in Millard County does not get up in the morning thinking, ďIíve got to fill my role as a soldier in the army for homeland defense.Ē

The Governor goes on to say,

Thereís no question that technology is the key to effective homeland defense. Itís the only thing that makes it possible. Thereís virtually no other way I can see to protect every target; you canít do it on a command and control centralized basis.

We have begun bringing some of those organizations together under an enterprise IT project that will begin the process of integration that the Governor discusses in this article.  The 12-state data integration project, 8-state communication and coordination project, intergovernmental IT council, GIS effort in infrastructure protection, enterprise notification system, and statewide mobile data network are all pieces of this massive effort to tie things together.
