Lawfare Blog: NPPD Reorganization Plan Seeks Focus on National Cyber, Physical Infrastructure Security

cybersecurityThe Department of Homeland Security has proposed to restructure its National Protection and Programs Directorate into a new organization that will focus on addressing threats to U.S. cyber and physical systems, according to a Lawfare blog article published March 21.

Paul Rosenzweig, founder of Red Branch Consulting, reports the department has offered Congress a plan to realign NPPD functions and programs and rebrand the agency as “Cyber and Infrastructure Protection.”

The reorganization effort seeks to distribute NPPD’s acquisition, business, strategic and analytical operations into three subcomponents.

Those subcomponents will be known as the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, Infrastructure Security and Federal Protective Service.
