The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.

Dr. Douglas Maughan is the Division Director of the Cyber Security Division in the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) within the Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Dr. Maughan has been at DHS since October 2003 and is directing and managing the Cyber Security Research and Development activities and staff at DHS S&T. His research interests and related programs are in the areas of networking and information assurance. Dr. Maughan has been responsible for helping bring to market over 40 commercial and open-source information security products during the past 12+ years while at DHS and is the Senior Executive responsible for the DHS Silicon Valley Innovation Program.
Prior to his appointment at DHS, Dr. Maughan was a Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Prior to his appointment at DARPA, Dr. Maughan worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) as a senior computer scientist and led several research teams performing network security research.
Dr. Maughan received Bachelor’s Degrees in Computer Science and Applied Statistics from Utah State University, a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).
The Cyber Security Division’s (CSD) mission is to contribute to enhancing the security and resilience of the nation’s critical information infrastructure and the Internet by developing and delivering new technologies, tools and techniques to enable DHS and the U.S. to defend, mitigate and secure current and future systems, networks and infrastructure against cyberattacks; and to conduct and support technology transition, and lead and coordinate research and development (R&D) among the R&D community which includes department customers, government agencies, the private sector and international partners.
The Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) is expanding DHS’s reach to find new technologies that strengthen national security with the goal of reshaping how government, entrepreneurs and industry work together to find cutting-edge solutions. DHS is reaching out to Silicon Valley and all of the innovation communities across the nation to harness the commercial R&D ecosystem for government applications, co-invest in ideas and accelerate transition-to-market.
