Synopsis

The Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) consists of a number of mutually reinforcing initiatives with the following major goals designed to help secure the United States in cyberspace:

  • To establish a front line of defense against today’s immediate threats by creating or enhancing shared situational awareness of network vulnerabilities, threats, and events within the Federal Government - and ultimately with state, local, and tribal governments and private sector partners — and the ability to act quickly to reduce our current vulnerabilities and prevent intrusions.
  • To defend against the full spectrum of threats by enhancing U.S. counterintelligence capabilities and increasing the security of the supply chain for key information technologies.
  • To strengthen the future cybersecurity environment by expanding cyber education; coordinating and redirecting research and development efforts across the Federal Government; and working to define and develop strategies to deter hostile or malicious activity in cyberspace.

CNCI Initiative Details

  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.
