Enhancing Cybersecurity in a World of Real- Time Threats: Insights from Dr. Phyllis Schneck, Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity and Communications, National Protection and Programs Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

As a nation, we are faced with pervasive cyber threats. Malicious actors, including those at nation-state level, are motivated by a variety of reasons that include espionage, political and ideological beliefs, and financial gain. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its National Protection and Programs Directorate works to assist federal agencies to understand and manage cyber risk, reduce the frequency and impact of cyber incidents, readily identify network security issues and take prioritized action. What are DHS’s key cybersecurity and communications priorities? What is the mission of the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC)? How is DHS building capacity to accelerate the sharing of cyber threats? Dr. Phyllis Schneck, deputy under secretary, Cybersecurity and Communications, National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, joined me on The Business of Government Hour to provide her insights into these questions and much more. The following is an edited excerpt of our discussion, complemented with additional research.
