As cyber and physical systems become more interconnected, the digital attack surface is extending further into our daily lives, with the potential for malicious cyber actors to create dangerous, real-world effects. Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) entities must collaborate and coordinate extensively with critical infrastructure private sector owners, operators, and stakeholders to identify and address these cybersecurity challenges. This will include: figuring out how DHS can most effectively and efficiently support SLTT agencies and partners in pursuing cybersecurity and the resilience of their Information Technology (IT) infrastructure, including response and recovery; finding programs, services, and outreach that would provide the greatest benefit to SLTT stakeholders in reducing IT risks; lastly, measuring how effective the Homeland Security Grant Program has been in addressing risks at SLTT levels, and how the Grant Program could best be structured to address cybersecurity risks.
