Homeland Security Office will set up a videoconferencing system

The Homeland Security Office is setting up a secure videoconferencing system to let director Tom Ridge communicate more easily with state governors.

James Flyzik, a senior adviser to Ridge, discussed the office's progress on a variety of projects during the opening ceremony of the Interagency Resources Management Council conference.

The videoconferencing system will be in place by the end of the year, Flyzik said. It will use Integrated Services Digital Network and other types of fast connections.

'It will start with portable devices and over time merge into a permanent system,' he said. 'We want to be able to set it up and take it down quickly.'
