Federal Network Security

Circuit BoardAs part of the sixth annual GFIRST conference, the National Cyber Security Division's (NCSD) Federal Network Security (FNS) branch is launching a more robust online resource for its partners.  The new web pages on DHS.gov explain FNS' authorities for building and executing a cohesive approach to reducing cybersecurity risks to Federal Executive Branch Agency networks and systems.

The GFIRST Conference, which takes place August 15-20, is the only event that brings together incident responders and cybersecurity professionals to exchange information and share best practices about the most critical security issues affecting the nation’s cyber infrastructure.  This year’s conference, in San Antonio, Texas, is being held in conjunction with the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center's annual meeting, as well at the InfraGard 2010 National Congress meeting.
