Phyllis Schneck: DHS Aims to Secure Gov’t Data Through Managed Security Services

Phyllis Schneck - McAfee, ExecutiveMosaicThe Department of Homeland Security plans to release managed security services for states and local governments in a move to help facilitate threat information sharing.

Phyllis Schneck, DHS deputy undersecretary for cybersecurity for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, said in a Feb. 27 blog post that the agency intends for the security services and the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s framework to help local governments protect information systems.

The Center for Internet Security’s information sharing and analysis center will roll out threat prevention, netflow analysis and firewall monitoring services as part of efforts to implement NIST’s framework.

DHS recently initiated the Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community Voluntary Program in order to coordinate information sharing initiatives.
