Why Read This Report

The US Federal government's participation in cybersecurity has been burdened with false starts and political wrangling. Members of the US Congress and the Executive Branch of the US Government have made statements on the need for improved cybersecurity, but very little has been done to help the private sector deal with an onslaught of cyberattacks. In a positive step, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now making money available through the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) process to fund research to solve some of the toughest cybersecurity issues. The amount of money is relatively small compared with the enormity of the cybersecurity problem, but it's a step in the right direction, and research funds are available now. This report explains what research the BAA program will fund and how security and risk professionals should decide whether to get their organizations involved.
