DHS Seeks Creation of New Cyber Coordination Unit

The Department of Homeland Security is looking to create a group for department-wide cybersecurity coordination, Fifth Domain reported Friday.

The potential Joint Cyber Coordination Group would operate under DHS' Office of Policy, Strategy and Plans, with six full-time personnel.

JCCG would serve as a central medium through which DHS components can communicate with each other for operational plans, investigative efforts and other cyber-related pursuits.

DHS requested $2.6M for the group's creation under the fiscal 2021 budget. The department told Congress that JCCG is needed to oversee "all aspects of associated risk" amid the growth of cyber threats.
