In a new report, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has stated that the Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD) needs to improve its performance metrics and cost estimates for implementing the National Cybersecurity Strategy. While the ONCD has a solid strategic foundation, the GAO found that it needs to provide more detailed plans on outcome-oriented performance measures and estimated costs. The GAO noted that the ONCD fully addressed four out of six desirable characteristics under the Strategy, but only partially met requirements in goals, subordinate objectives, performance measures, and investments and risk management. The ONCD disagreed with the GAO’s recommendation regarding estimating implementation costs but did agree to establish outcome-oriented performance measures.
