Overview

The CSIA Interagency Working Group (IWG) was created in 2006 to coordinate Federal cybersecurity R&D across 16 participating agencies and support their research activities to protect U.S. information and information systems from cyber threats. Guided by the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan and aligned with NIST's Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, the IWG focuses on the safety and security of systems that underpin a vast array of capabilities and technologies in multiple sectors, including power generation, transportation, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, and national security.
