FCW : May 15, 2013
May 15, 2013 FCW.COM 9 of those medical records --- some running hundreds of pages --- are still in paper form 40% Investment in cybersecurity might be a given at the Defense and Homeland Security departments, but a closer look at the president s proposed s- cal 2014 budget also shows increas- ing investment at a number of other agencies. DOD and DHS both receive sub- stantial funding in the budget pro- posal, including close to $5 billion in cyber funding for the Pentagon. At DHS, an overall budget of $39 billion for scal 2014 would go toward "core homeland security functions, such as transportation security, cybersecu- rity and border security," the White House s proposal states. The DHS gure includes nearly $500 million for cybersecurity research and development and almost $1 bil- lion expressly for protecting federal computers and networks against mali- cious cyber activity. In addition, portions of $3.4 bil- lion in capital investments and $4.4 billion to protect critical infrastructure and key assets would be directed to cybersecurity measures. The National Protection and Programs Directorate would receive roughly $2.5 billion across a handful of areas. Beyond the two agencies most com- monly tasked with national security matters, other federal organizations also saw their cybersecurity and infor- mation security budgets increase. The departments of Justice, Energy and Commerce, and the National Intelli- gence Program all have budget line items for cyber-related protections. "We must...confront new dangers, like cyberattacks, that threaten our nation s infrastructure, businesses and people," President Barack Obama wrote in the introductory budget mes- sage, released April 10. "The budget supports the expansion of govern- mentwide efforts to counter the full scope of cyber threats, and strength- ens our ability to collaborate with state and local governments, our part- ners overseas and the private sector to improve our overall cybersecurity." At Justice, $93 million of the $28 billion overall budget would go to "cybersecurity enhancements and [ensure] that critical investments in cybersecurity are made in a whole- of-government manner and that cross- agency priorities receive attention," according to Of ce of Management and Budget documents. At Commerce, $176 million in proposed funding falls under the umbrella of protecting critical infra- structure and key assets. That number includes more than $104 million for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a jump from $73 million in the enacted budget for scal 2012. NIST s total scal 2014 budget is $754 million --- an increase of $131 million over 2012. DOE, which plays a major role in securing the critical infrastructure of various utilities, would get a huge cyber boost in scal 2014: $16 million for "enhanced energy infrastructure security and energy recovery capabili- ties," which is a $10 million increase over previous funding. DOE receives $153 million for modernizing the elec- tricity grid, including cybersecurity for energy control systems. "This investment seeks to develop real-time situational awareness to improve grid operations, build system- level understanding needed for inno- vative approaches to technology and regional planning, support advanced visualization analysis and decision support for grid operators leading to predictive response, and enhance security of the grid," budget docu- ments state. --- Amber Corrin 2014 budget shows how cyber programs are spreading In an April 15 story, FCW.com reported that Department of Homeland Security CIO Richard Spires' sudden, extended leave was precipitated by a disagreement with DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano over the CIO's authority over departmentwide budgeting and purchasing of commodity IT. Here is a small sampling of the comments and shares on Twitter in the days that followed. RICHARD SPIRES STORY RESPONSE Joshua D. Smith (@joshuadalesmith) Huge setback for Fed IT reform. SIIA Public Sector (@SIIAPSIG) This is really fascinating if Spires was "suspended" for trying to consolidate CIO authority per OMB memo. Ian Colle (@ircolle) Seems like a bad time for DHS CIO to be off on unlimited extended paid leave. Join the conversation. FCW uses Twitter to break news, eld questions and ask our own.

Scott Barman (@DCDawg) Spires is right and Napolitano should be ashamed of herself!!! Lena Trudeau (@ltrudeau) If true, I admire him even more.
