NCP manages a portal on the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) dedicated to sharing continuity of operations information and products. HSIN is a web-based limited access network for the delivery of real-time interactive information and is accessible by both federal and non-federal organizations.
The purpose of the HSIN continuity site is to function as a conduit for continuity information sharing and storage for the national continuity community. The HSIN site provides continuity information, tools, and templates; continuity training and course information; continuity emergency management information; and helpful web links.
Examples of documentation on the site include the National Threat Advisory status, Really Simple Syndication (RSS) news feeds, Federal Continuity Directive 1 (FCD 1) and FCD 2, Continuity Guidance Circular 1 (CGC 1), National Security Presidential Directive-51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive-20, the National Continuity Policy Implementation Plan, Pandemic Template Instructions, Vital Records Brochure, and various website links. NCP routinely uses this site to post GIS disaster information during emergencies and disasters, and other important continuity information, including policy guidance documents and training and exercise information.
