CISA Focusing on Election Interference, Centralized Cyber Budget Approach

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency looks to apply a centralized approach to managing cyber capability requirements to protect federal agency networks, FCW reported Tuesday

Christopher Krebs, director of the Department of Homeland Security component and 2019 Wash100 Award winner, said he wants lawmakers and agency heads to consider cyber risk assessment and mitigation efforts in the budget process to streamline acquisition and coordination.

He added that he plans to continue CISA’s focus on mitigating election interference following Russia’s reported involvement in the 2016 presidential elections. Krebs noted that CISA will keep asking Congress to fund its election-related work through 2020.
