Brig. Gen. Gregory Touhill (USAF Ret.), president of AppGate Federal Group, discusses what the FY21 budget request has in store for Homeland Security’s cybersecurity component.

The FY21 budget request would change funding at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. If the funding is approved, CISA would take a cut to a $1.75 billion. Brig. Gen. Gregory Touhill (USAF Ret.), president of AppGate Federal Group, told Government Matters that cybersecurity needs to be a higher priority for the government.

 

“We should be boosting cybersecurity spending in the civilian space. As I compare it against the military cybersecurity budget, It is dwarfed by the military budget. ‘.gov’ versus ‘.mil,’ we’re seeing a dramatic delta between the two budgets. We did in the previous administrations as well. There needs to be some greater balance,” Touhill said. “As you take a look at trying to preserve the taxpayer’s coffers, we are still running a tremendous deficit, trillions of dollars. There has to be some cuts and better spending.”
