Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace.
As Americans become more reliant on modern technology, we also become more vulnerable to cyber attacks such as Corporate Security Breaches, Spear Phishing, and Social Media Fraud.
DHS is responsible for overseeing the protection of the.gov domain and for providing assistance and expertise to private sector owners and operators of cyber networks.
DHS works to safeguard and secure cyberspace through programs such as the Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign which helps the public recognizes cybersecurity challenges and is empowered to address them.
The Department continues to improve cybersecurity across all critical information sectors as well as its cyber infrastructure and networks.
