CNCI Declassified - top government contractors - best government contracting event
Howard Schmidt

The White House has unveiled a declassified version of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI). The CNCI was originally started by the Bush Administration and President Obama has decided to evolve the CNCI to become key sections in an expanded and up-to-date cybersecurity strategy for the US.

The decision to declassify portions of the CNCI is part of the wider effort under the Obama administration to increase government transparency. At the RSA Conference out in California this week, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt announced the declassification and highlighted in his address the need for transparency and partnerships.

The CNCI’s broader mandate is to:

1) Establish defensive capabilities against the current threat landscape

2) Defending against the broad range of cyber threats

3) Strengthen future cybersecurity efforts

The CNCI contains twelve major initiatives:

1) Manage the Federal Enterprise Network as a single network enterprise with Trusted Internet Connections

2) Deploy an intrusion detection system of sensors across the Federal enterprise

3) Pursue deployment of intrusion prevention systems across the Federal enterprise

4) Coordinate and redirect research and development (R&D) efforts

5) Connect current cyber ops centers to enhance situational awareness

6) Develop and implement a government-wide cyber counterintelligence (CI) plan

7) Increase the security of our classified networks

8) Expand cyber education

9) Define and develop enduring “leap ahead” technology, strategies, and programs

10) Define and develop enduring deterrence strategies and programs

11) Develop a multi-pronged approach for global supply chain risk management

12) Define the Federal role for extending cybersecurity into critical infrastructure domains
