DHS Sets Approach to National Cyber Risk Management Through New Strategy

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a new strategy that outlines measures to detect and manage cybersecurity risk and address changing threats to critical infrastructure and functions.

DHS said Tuesday the new cyber strategy was released in compliance with the fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act and seeks to prioritize and harmonize the department’s programming, planning, operational and budgeting efforts across its cyber mission areas.

The strategy aims to manage cyber risks through a five-part approach that includes risk identification; vulnerability reduction; consequence mitigation; enablement of cyber outcomes; and threat reduction.

“Our strategy outlines how DHS will leverage its unique capabilities on the digital battlefield to defend American networks and get ahead of emerging cyber threats,” said DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a 2018 Wash100 recipient.
