CSIS: OMB Has Been A Source of Progress

The Center for Strategic & International Studies’ Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency has released a follow-up to its report Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency.  The new report, Cybersecurity Two Years Later — Measuring Progress, highlights the role OMB has played in advancing cybersecurity policy.  The report states, 

In the White House, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been a source of progress. It is making significant revisions to the implementation process for the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) to create a dynamic and automated assessment of agencies’ security. It is developing focused standards for “cloud” security. These initiatives will make the federal government more efficient, and they substantially reinforce cybersecurity in the “dot gov” environment.
