Recent cyber attacks demonstrate the potentially devastating impact these pose to our nationżs computer systems and to the fed. operations and critical infrastructures that they support. They also highlight that we need to be vigilant against individuals and groups with malicious intent, such as criminals, terrorists, and nation-states perpetuating these attacks. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) is the focal point for coordinating cybersecurity, including responsibility for protecting systems that support critical infrastructures, a practice commonly referred to as cyber critical infrastr

Because the nation's critical infrastructure relies on info. tech. systems and data, the security of those assets is critical to ensuring national security and public safety. In 2003, the Pres. directed federal agencies to: (1) develop plans for the protection of their computer-related critical infrastructure assets; and (2) submit them for approval to the Office of Mgmt. and Budget (OMB) by 7/31/04. To do this, OMB issued guidance with 19 criteria deemed essential for effective cyber critical infrastructure protection planning that must be included in the plans. This report determined: (1) th

Because the Fed. gov't. relies on commercial satellites (CS), security threats leading to their disruption or loss would put gov't. functions (incl. communications & info. transmission) at significant risk. The GAO was asked to review, among other things, the techniques used by Fed. agencies to reduce the risk assoc. with using CS, as well as efforts to improve satellite system security undertaken as part of Fed. efforts in critical infrastructure protection. GAO recommends that steps be taken to promote the appropriate development & implementation of policy regarding the security of CS system
