White House Publishes National Cybersecurity Strategy Implementation Plan | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

The White House has published a roadmap for implementing President Biden’s March 2023 National Cybersecurity Strategy to ensure transparency and a continued path for coordination. The National Cybersecurity Strategy Implementation Plan (NCSIP) includes more than 65 federal initiatives that aim to improve resilience against cyber threats and disrupt cyber threat operations, and changes how the United States allocates roles, responsibilities, and resources in cyberspace.

Two major shifts include ensuring that the biggest, most capable, and best-positioned entities in both the public and private sectors assume a greater share of the burden for mitigating cyber risk and increasing the incentives to favor long-term investments in cybersecurity. The initiatives are based on five pillars and aim to achieve 27 strategic objectives. The first pillar is concerned with defending critical infrastructure against cyberattacks that are increasing in number and sophistication. Cybersecurity requirements will be established to support national security and public safety across all critical infrastructure sectors, including healthcare. Public-private collaboration will be scaled to drive the development and adoption of secure-by-design and secure-by-default technology, Federal defenses will be modernized, and the Federal incident response plans and processes will be updated.

The second pillar is concerned with the disruption and dismantling of threat actors’ infrastructure. The initiatives include increasing the speed and scale of intelligence sharing and victim notification, the prevention of abuse of U.S. infrastructure, countering cybercrime, and disrupting ransomware. The third pillar is concerned with shaping market forces to drive security and resilience, including initiatives to drive the development of secure IoT devices, shifting liability for insecure software products and services, using grants and other incentives to ensure built-in security, and exploring the need for a Federal cyber insurance backstop for catastrophic cyber events.

The fourth pillar concerns investment in a cyber-resilient future, including securing the technical foundation of the internet, improving federal research and development in cybersecurity, preparing for a post-quantum computing future, and developing a national strategy for strengthening the cyber workforce. The fifth pillar involves forging international partnerships to pursue shared cybersecurity goals, including building coalitions to counter digital threats, strengthening the capabilities of international partners, expanding the ability of the U.S. to assist allies and partners achieve shared goals, and securing global supply chains for information, communications, and operational technology products and services.
