According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), there are three major challenges facing the nation’s top financial institutions. The DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Cyber Security Division (CSD) works closely with the nation’s Financial Services Sector (FSS) to address the following issues:
1) Adversaries are infiltrating our systems and networks without our knowledge.
2) Our understanding of the cyber situation is inaccurate, incomplete, or only achieved forensically and after the infiltration has occurred.
3) Network owners and operators lack strong methods to respond and mitigate the impact of adversaries on our systems, while still allowing for the sector to maintain adequate operating capacity.
The DHS Next Generation Cyber Infrastructure (NGCI) Apex Program addresses these challenges by providing the financial services sector with the technologies and tools to confront advanced adversaries when they attack U.S. cyber systems and networks. The NGCI Apex Program concentrates on delivering capabilities identified by the financial services sector to address five primary functional gaps, one of them being “Dynamic Defense”, which is defined as follows:
Present changing external and internal network layouts that are harder for adversaries to probe, breach and exploit, significantly increasing the economic costs for a potential attacker.
