National Cyber Director’s office sheds light on forthcoming cybersecurity strategy
A forthcoming White House national cybersecurity strategy will emphasize tracking cybersecurity performance metrics and building resilience as some of its key priorities, according to a top official from the Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD).
ONCD Director for Budget and Assessment Dylan Presman said his office was in the midst of leading an interagency collaboration with the private sector on a draft cybersecurity strategy that aims to align U.S. policy choices with White House cybersecurity goals and national digital aspirations through a data-driven approach.
“ONCD is thinking about how to measure the effectiveness of activities designed to impact the nation’s cybersecurity – both within the federal government but also across the nation,” Presman said at an R Street Institute event on Wednesday. “Tracking cybersecurity performance metrics will support decisions for budgets and spending.”
