Ron Marks, president of ZPN National Security and Cyber Strategies, discusses the budget request’s cyber provisions, and how they might make it all the way through the congressional process.


The White House’s 2020 budget request includes 9 billion dollars for cyber activities, and expand the role that the Homeland Security and Energy department’s cybersecurity offices play. Ron Marks, president of ZPN National Security and Cyber Strategies, says that the cyber provisions could make it very far in this year’s budget, because of growing tech literacy in Congress.   “I think one of the things you’re dealing with is, you have younger generation of more savvy people now in the Congress and the House and to some extent in the Senate you’re also seeing this. The cyber caucus is beginning to move forward. It is a motherhood issue to some extent. We have problems now and we’ve talked about it and it’s primarily securely related. Also, it’s in terms of what it is we are doing for our general overall national security, how much money do you want to spend on this thing? How do you reach out to the public and the private sector? That public/private sector partnership business has been very tough. My sense on the hill at this point is people are concerned and they want to help.”
