    In response to increased cybersecurity concerns, the fiscal 2017 Department of Defense budget will include a 15% spending increase for cyber operations

    The president's budget request asks that Congress support a broad-based cybersecurity strategy that includes enhancements to critical infrastructure. The planned increase in cyber spending will be at least the second consecutive increase for cyber operations.

    The funding for this cybersecurity effort will be widely spread out across various agencies within the federal government via several appropriations bills.

    The House (CJS) Commerce, Justice & Science Appropriations Bill will contain funding for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) programs. This will include retail-specific cybersecurity initiatives like multifactor authentication for e-commerce and securing non-credit card, sensitive consumer data

    The Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill is set to provide funding for cybersecurity and protection of communications. The bill includes $1.1 billion to secure civilian (government) networks, detect and prevent cyberattacks and foreign espionage, and enhance and modernize emergency communications.

    The bill would also provide $84.5 million for the International Trade Commission (ITC) to improve its cybersecurity posture.

    One of the most important initiatives in the bill is the $3.1 billion Information Technology Modernization Fund. The fund would be used to replace legacy IT systems across the government, according to Andrew Grotto, Senior Director for Cybersecurity for the National Security Council, during a Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) event in Washington.

    "You really can't separate cybersecurity from IT acquisition and IT management. At the end of the day, we don't do cybersecurity for its own sake, we do cybersecurity to support reliable IT."
