Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo released a joint statement on President Biden’s signing of a new National Security Memorandum, “Improving Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure Control Systems.”
In accordance with Section 101 and Title I of the SECURE Technology Act (P.L. 115-390), this policy provides security researchers with clear guidelines for (1) conducting vulnerability and attack vector discovery activities directed at Department of Homeland Security (DHS) systems and (2) submitting those discovered vulnerabilities. This policy has been developed in consultation with the Attorney General, the Secretary of Defense, the Administrator of GSA, and non-governmental security researchers.
The Technology and Innovation Exchanges: Securing Mobile Network Infrastructure engagement, hosted by DHS S&T and CISA, focuses on the DHS operational mission of mobile network infrastructure, specifically protecting and securing legacy, current and 5G mobile network communications, services and equipment.
CISA and S&T will host a May 16 Industry Day to introduce and answer questions from industry about a new R&D funding opportunity to help secure and make resilient critical mobile communications networks.
March brings three opportunities for innovators, partners and stakeholders to connect with DHS S&T.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) cybersecurity research and development (R&D) program develops innovative solutions to meet a broad array of cybersecurity challenges across the U.S. government, international partners, academia and the private sector.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hosted the inaugural meeting of the nation’s first Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force. The task force is a public-private partnership formed to examine and develop consensus recommendations to identify and manage risk to the global ICT supply chain.
The Transition to Practice (TTP) program accelerates the path of cybersecurity technologies from the research lab to the marketplace. TTP identifies promising federally funded cybersecurity technologies and facilitates their adoption into broader use through partnerships with the private sector and commercialization.
