DoD, DHS to align cybersecurity capabilities
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced plans Tuesday to streamline their cybersecurity capabilities to better protect the nation's networks.
Late last month, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates signed an agreement that formalizes processes for the two agencies to work together to protect U.S. networks and critical infrastructure.
The agreement outlines a framework whereby the agencies will provide cybersecurity support to one another, and was intended to improve collaboration as the two departments carry out their respective cybersecurity missions.
Under the agreement, DoD cyber analysts will work within the DHS in support of the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), an incident response facility that opened late last year.
