ICIT 2023 Spring Briefing: Modernization - Problem Identification & Prioritization
There are three categories of cybersecurity initiatives: scalability and leveraging efficiencies, speed to objectives, and deepening resilience and eliminating vulnerabilities. While these three initiative types can be implemented in isolation, taking a systems approach, the significant overlap and interrelationships between initiatives will lead to a more successful and impactful implementation. Therefore, the first step to identifying initiative opportunities is analyzing agency objectives and gaps between current performance and objectives. These analyses encompass budget considerations, inter- and intra-agencies collaboration, mission objectives, and what initiatives the agency can effectively undertake.
