digital representation of a cyber lockSecuring and protecting our nation’s cyber networks is a key priority for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). 

To defend and counter increasingly sophisticated attacks on U.S. cyber infrastructure, the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) executes cybersecurity research and development in information technology and the systems that monitor the nation’s critical information framework.

S&T supports DHS components such as CISA, FBI, ICE, DoJ, FEMA, USCG and others with emerging technologies to enhance the resilience of our critical information infrastructure and the internet, including:

  • Cyber Data Analytics
  • Machine Learning
  • Malware Analysis
  • Software Assurance
  • Mobility

DHS S&T works to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity with the latest and best innovations by partnering with the private sector to include small businesses, international partners, law enforcement and other first responders, industry and academic groups to develop advanced critical infrastructure and cyber capabilities.

There are continuous efforts underway to develop new capabilities, including CyLab, a joint initiative between CISA and S&T to create an advanced analytics, multi-cloud environment that will facilitate secure strategic and critical cybersecurity problem solving as early as 2024.
