Overview Edit

Federal Network Resilience's Network and Infrastructure Security (NIS) branch optimizes federal agency network services into a common baseline security solution for the federal government. NIS provides network security support to federal departments and agencies by clarifying and overseeing federal security policy issues found during implementation of security initiatives. NIS champions the use of shared services and ensures that the right security information is shared throughout the federal government.

Mission Edit

The NIS branch supports the goals of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI), specifically Initiative 1, "Manage the Federal Enterprise Network as a single network enterprise with Trusted Internet Connections," which is commonly referred to as the "Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) Initiative."

NIS is responsible for the oversight of the TIC initiative, development of Federal Network Resilience Reference Architectures for federal civilian agencies, and other related government-wide network and infrastructure security efforts.
