During a hearing on post-9/11 transportation issues, a representative of the Government Accountability Office outlined five key cybersecurity areas the Department of Homeland Security should address.

According to the statement, DHS needs to focus on the following:

(1) developing a comprehensive national plan for critical infrastructure protection, including cybersecurity; (2) developing and enhancing national cyber analysis and warning capabilities; (3) providing and coordinating incident response and recovery planning, including conducting incident response exercises; (4) identifying, assessing, and supporting efforts to reduce cyber threats and vulnerabilities, including those associated with infrastructure control systems; and (5) strengthening international cyberspace security.

Cathleen Berrick, author of the statement, saidm “DHS has since developed and implemented certain capabilities to satisfy aspects of its responsibilities, but it has not fully implemented GAO’s recommendations and, thus, more action is needed to address the risk to critical cybersecurity infrastructure.”
