Connecting the sectors. Werntz was instrumental in establishing the Automated Indicator Sharing platform for sharing real-time, bidirectional, cyberthreat intelligence between the federal government and private-sector entities. AIS was the first system of its kind to bridge the private and public sectors and the first mission-critical workload DHS deployed in Amazon Web Services’ GovCloud. Werntz worked with multiple DHS stakeholders to ensure that the standards for Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program accreditation were met. AIS has already shared more than 75,000 unique threat indicators — 100 to 150 a day — among 90 participants in government and the private sector.
