Feds Eye Cybersecurity, Networking Projects

When it comes to securing the nation's digital infrastructure and ensuring that first responders can talk to each other, the Department of Homeland Security sees its role as a liaison -- and often a mediator -- between the myriad agencies and businesses involved.

One of DHS's chief priorities is incubating and funding research projects that could find a practical application in the field. Here at the GovSec conference, the annual trade show for government security workers and contractors, DHS officials appealed for proposals for security and communications projects, emphasizing that the department is primarily focused on the state and local levels.
