Douglas Maughan, director of the Cyber Security Division at the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, discusses guides that his agency put out to promote cybersecurity development, and how they are looking to the private sector to put their tech solutions on the market.


  The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate has released two new guides to the public. The 2018 Cyber Security Division Portfolio Guide aims to drive industry adoption of DHS cybersecurity solutions, and the 2018 Cyber Security Division Technology Guide hopes to spur a conversation about the agency’s research and development agenda.   “The portfolio guide is overarching… it tells a little bit about all the programs. The technology guide gives detailed technical presentations of over 70 technologies that are mature,” said Douglas Maughan, director of the Cyber Security Division at the DHS Science and Technology Directorate. “We’re trying to find pilot partners and others who will take the technology and transition and commercialize those capabilities.”   The guides are the released annually, so the technologies and strategies featured change from year to year. Maughan said that this year, there was an increased emphasis on the economics of cybersecurity and technology.   “People haven’t been thinking about the economics behind cybersecurity. Why do people invest, or why don’t people invest?” Maughan told Government Matters. “As we look at more and more breaches, you see that in the news, and the companies are having to think about this issue. It costs, but security is important, and so they need to think about how to do that in a cost-effective manner.”
