From the Document: "The Department of State (State) leads U.S. government international efforts to advance the full range of U.S. interests in cyberspace, including by coordinating with other federal agencies, such as the Departments of Commerce (Commerce), Defense (DOD), Energy (DOE), Homeland Security (DHS), Justice (DOJ), and the Treasury (Treasury), to improve the cybersecurity of the nation. [...] In June 2019, State notified Congress of its intent to establish a new Bureau of Cyberspace Security and Emerging Technologies (CSET) that would focus more narrowly on cyberspace security and the security aspects of emerging technologies. [...] This report examines the extent to which State involved other federal agencies in the development of its plan for establishing CSET. As part of our ongoing work on this topic, we are also continuing to monitor and review State's overall planning process for establishing this new bureau."
