Initiative prioritization is based on three guiding principles – those that:
- support the evolution of a complementary set of capabilities at all layers – from local to national – to collectively enhance overall cybersecurity posture for the sector.
- address priorities or gaps with the greatest potential to advance cybersecurity posture across the broadest portion of the ecosystem.
- primarily benefit the entire R&E system. All eligible organizations should be able to participate in and/or benefit from initiatives funded by the program.
