The Department of Homeland Security is looking to reorganize a DHS component that oversees security of physical and cyber systems at the department, FCW reported Wednesday.

Sean Lyngaas writes Suzanne Spaulding, undersecretary for DHS’ National Protection and Programs Directorate, told a House subcommittee at a hearing Wednesday the department seeks to implement changes in NPPD’s governance, processes and culture.

“Within NPPD, we need to take a holistic approach across cyber and physical risks,” she was quoted as saying by FCW.

DHS wants to empower the directorate-run National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center and align the information exchange hub with the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation and Einstein programs, the report said.
