DHS Requests Feedback on Vulnerability Assessment Process

The Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency seeks third party feedback on an effort to assess infrastructure security.

CISA uses a system to gather critical infrastructure data from organizations, but the cost of assessments has risen from $1.8M to $1.9M, DHS said Thursday in a Federal Register notice.

The process involves the work of protective security and cybersecurity advisors to assess an organization's critical infrastructure. These assessments provide information that organizations use to make decisions on CI funding.

CISA and the Office of Management and Budget seek feedback on the process' relevance to agency performance, information quality and burden estimates and reduction.

Interested parties have 30 more days to submit sought input.
