President Obama has announced a Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP) to strengthen cybersecurity in the public and private sectors.  And to do so, he proposes an increase in federal cybersecurity funding by more than a third, to over $19 billion.  The proposal focuses on updating the federal government’s own cybersecurity infrastructure and practices, increasing recruitment of cyber professionals, strengthening partnerships with the private sector, and empowering Americans to protect themselves online.  While some of the action items can be accomplished by the Executive alone, the proposal could face trouble where it relies on an increase in federal spending that will need Congress’s approval.
