Federal CIO Suzette Kent: Federal IT Leaders Should Expect New Cybersecurity Reporting Metrics Before Year Ends

1 min read

Federal Chief Information Officer Suzette Kent has said federal agencies should expect the White House to implement new cybersecurity reporting guidelines, as part of the administration's efforts to have agencies reflect its IT goals, NextGov reported Tuesday.

Kent made at the announcement at the Digitial Government Institute's 930gov conference held Tuesday, where she divulged that reporting metrics under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 are set to be updated before the year ends. The move is meant to help federal agencies achieve cybersecurity benchmarks spelled out in the government's IT Modernization Report and the President's Management Agenda.

The Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Homeland Security are currently conducting the updates to the FISMA guidelines, whose release are scheduled for this fall.
