Ron Marks, chair of the intelligence program at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School Of National Security, discusses the new Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and what makes it different from its predecessor.


Soon, the National Protection and Programs Directorate will have an official name change. Last week, a Department of Homeland Security reorganization bill passed both chambers of Congress, and is expected to be signed by President Trump. The new division, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, has an elevated role within DHS, and is aiming to be the lead government office for cybersecurity issues. Ron Marks, chair of the intelligence program at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School Of National Security says that the change makes sense for the organization.   “All things considered, it’s a good bureaucratic move. It takes it from a staff job up to a true under secretary job, and probably a director job, where people are dealing at somewhat more of an equal level,” Marks said. “I’m still a little confused over what they think the mission is going to be. I’m old enough to remember when it was IPIA and people were arguing over infrastructure versus the cyber part.”
