Fiscal Year 2009 Homeland Security Grant Program: Supplemental Resource: Cyber Security Guidance   [open pdf - 78KB]

This Cyber Security Guidance document provides supplemental information to the United Stated Department of Homeland Securities Fiscal Year 2009 Homeland Security Grant Program. "With the pervasiveness of information technology (IT) and cyber networks systems in nearly every aspect of society, effectively securing the Nation's critical infrastructure requires investments in network resiliency as well as cyber infrastructure protection. As all levels of government now rely on cyber networks and assets to provide national security, public safety, and economic prosperity, their operations depend on information systems that are maintained, protected, and secured from exploitation and attack. The increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) requires planning across all State, local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) homeland security components to develop robust strategies to prepare for and respond to events that can degrade or destroy SLTT governments' abilities to deliver essential services to citizens and prepare for the impact of terrorist activity or natural disaster."
