GovInfoSecurity reports on the cybersecurity budget funding within the Trump administration’s proposed fiscal 2020 budget. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security would receive more than $1 billion for cybersecurity under the proposed budget. The Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and the Food and Drug Administration will all receive increases in their cybersecurity funding, while the Office for Civil Rights and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT would see cuts. WilmerHale Cybersecurity and Privacy Group Co-Chair Kirk Nahra, CIPP/US, expressed his concerns about the reduction to OCR’s budget, as well as the "shift toward obtaining budget dollars through more enforcement and higher penalties."
