National Challenges and Goals for Cybersecurity

The 2016 Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan creates the science and technology to ensure America’s prosperity, national security in cyberspace.

The President has made it clear that cybersecurity is one of the most important challenges we face as a Nation. Advances in cybersecurity science and engineering are urgently needed to preserve the Internet’s social and economic benefits.

As part of the President’s Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), the Administration also released the 2016 Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan, which was coordinated by the National Science and Technology Council.   This is the most comprehensive federal cybersecurity research and development (R&D) plan to date, and it updates 2011’s Trustworthy Cyberspace: Strategic Plan for the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Program.

Software defects, which are currently common, also give rise to many vulnerabilities.  Science and technology advances are needed for the design and implementation of software, firmware, and hardware that are highly resistant to malicious cyber activities.  And because system breaches are often due to innocent actions by well-intentioned users, we also need to develop effective, measurable technical and non-technical security controls that consider human behavior and economic incentives in cyberspace. 

As we accelerate the important work of making computing and the Internet inherently more secure through implementation of the plan, it will be critical to re-examine, refine, and extend the plan over time.  Today, the President also established the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity to provide recommendations on actions that can be taken over the next decade to strengthen cybersecurity, including further investments in research and development initiatives. While their work is just beginning, the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan will provide the Commission a valuable reference point as they consider the challenges and opportunities in cybersecurity R&D.
