CISA Releases Fact Sheet on Effort to Revise the National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP)

Today, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released a fact sheet on the effort to revise the National Cyber Incident Response Plan (NCIRP). Through the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), CISA will work to ensure that the updated NCIRP addresses significant changes in policy and cyber operations since the initial NCIRP was released.

First published in 2016, the NCIRP was developed in accordance with Presidential Policy Directive 41 (PPD-41) on U.S. Cyber Incident Coordination and describes how federal government, private sector, and state, local, tribal, territorial (SLTT) government entities will organize to manage, respond to, and mitigate the consequences of significant cyber incidents. 

NCIRP 2024 will address changes to the cyber threat landscape and in the nation’s cyber defense ecosystem by incorporating principles grounded in four main areas:

  • Unification 

  • Shared Responsibility 

  • Learning from the Past 

  • Keeping Pace with Evolutions in Cybersecurity 

CISA encourages all organizations to read the fact sheet and visit CISA’s NCIRP webpage to learn about this long-term effort and stay updated on the development of the NCIRP 2024.
