Quick Takes - Cybersecurity Updates

The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Integrated Task Force has been disbanded after completing the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). Remaining functions of the task force were transitioned to their DHS components. The task force was originally created to raise security and resilience among the nation's critical infrastructure operators and owners. The plan outlines how government and critical infrastructure owners in the private sector can work together to manage cyber risks and secure critical infrastructure. 


In February the administration announced the launch of the Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community C-Cubed Voluntary Program, a public-private partnership led by DHS to align the critical infrastructure community with existing resources and assist in managing cyber risks. It's geared towards implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to encourage different industries to increase both cyber resilience and use of the Framework. This program was initiated as part of Executive Order 13636: Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurityreleased in February 2013.
