Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative   [open pdf - 273KB]

"President Obama has identified cybersecurity as one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation, but one that we as a government or as a country are not adequately prepared to counter. Last year the President accepted recommendations of the resulting Cyberspace Policy Review which was built on the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI), the success of which will largely depend on the strategic foundational capabilities within the Government (including funding within the federal law enforcement, intelligence, and defense communities to enhance key functions such as criminal investigation, and intelligence gathering, processing, and analysis). Enhanced information sharing is the cornerstone of this new initiative that carves out extensive provisions to address the privacy and civil liberties of the American people. It is this administration's goal to improve public understanding of Federal efforts, and in this vein the Cybersecurity Coordinator has released a summary description of the CNCI."
