The strategy created by DHS would cover the following areas:
Strategic and operational goals and priorities to successfully execute the full range of the Secretary’s cybersecurity responsibilities;
Information on the programs, policies, and activities required to successfully execute DHS’ responsibilities. This would include cybersecurity investigations capabilities, research and development, and engagement with international partners.
In developing its strategy, DHS would use its 2011 cybersecurity strategy, the DHS strategic plan for fiscal years 2014-2018, and the most recent Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. It would use all of these as a guideline in crafting strategic objectives and related tasks, projected timelines and costs for those tasks, and metrics to evaluate performance.
DHS would provide Congress with a copy of the cybersecurity strategy and its implementation plan. Congress would have to give its authorization for any reorganization of departmental components or offices within DHS.
