John Banghart: Agencies Center Cyber Goals on Continuous Monitoring, Authentication

cybersecurityThe Department of Homeland Security is coordinating with officials at the White House to redevelop DHS’ approach of measuring cross-agency efforts to improve federal cybersecurity, Federal Times reported June 20.

The government measures cybersecurity and federal efforts through the performance.gov website, where agencies file reports to DHS every quarter on their ability to meet goals and how they compare to other companies, Amber Corrin writes.

John Banghart, White House director of federal agency cybersecurity, said June 18 at a MeriTalk event in Washington that the current primary cross-agency goals center on continuous monitoring, trusted internet connections and strong authentication or DHS directives.

“It’s an attempt to raise awareness across agencies that these are the things you need to be doing; it’s an attempt to try and manage parts of the government more as a whole as opposed to every agency doing their own thing,” he said.
