We sat down with Dr. Michael Connell and Dr. Lily Chen to discuss protecting sensitive and critical information. Dr. Connell is the Principal Research Scientist for the Center for Naval Analyses and Dr. Chen is currently Project Manager at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Both share insight into adversary's cyber behavior , what to prioritize when responding to threats, best practices for protecting critical information, using cryptography algorithms for defense and more. Both Dr. Connell and Dr. Chen will be presenting at the upcoming Cyber Security for Defense Summit.
We took a look at the top ten departments scheduled to receive the most additional funding for cybersecurity in FY2019. This infographic shares where these departments are looking to spend in 2019, as well as how much their cybersecurity budgets have increased over the last few years. The FY 2019 President’s Budget includes $15 billion of budget authority for cybersecurity-related activities, which is a $583.4 million (4.1 percent) increase above the FY 2018 Estimate. This amount does not represent the entire U.S. cybersecurity budget, as some funding is classified.
