Every four years, the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) and the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program, update the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan. On behalf of Federal agencies, NITRD’s Cyber Security and Information Assurance Interagency Working Group (CSIA IWG) is leading the effort to prepare the next update of the strategic plan, to be released by end of 2019.

In preparation for the strategic plan update, the CSIA IWG posted a Request for Information (RFI) [Federal Register Doc. 2018-24668], seeking public input on Federal priorities in cybersecurity R&D. The RFI public responses received are posted below.
