White House Fact Sheet: Administration Cybersecurity Efforts 2015

The White House fact sheet on cybersecurity highlights five NIST efforts to improve the nation's cybersecurity: The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), Special Publication 800-171: Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations, and the NTIA-led effort to promote stakeholder engagement on cybersecurity. 

From the beginning of his Administration, the President has made it clear that cybersecurity is one of the most important challenges we face as a Nation. In response, the U.S. Government has implemented a wide range of policies, both domestic and international, to improve our cyber defenses, enhance our response capabilities, and upgrade our incident management tools. 

As the cyber threat continues to increase in severity and sophistication, so does the pace of the Administration's efforts. Included in this fact sheet are some of the achievements of this Administration in just the last six months. Since cybersecurity is about managing risk throughout the entire enterprise over the long-term, not through isolated, one-off actions, the Administration will continue to build on these efforts in the future.
