President's Proposed 2020 Budget: Impact on Cybersecurity

March 12, 2019 Mayuri Kumar

The Trump administration's proposed fiscal 2020 budget calls for substantial cuts at many non-defense agencies, but it would provide extra funding for certain cybersecurity-related efforts.

Agencies that would see a boost in cybersecurity-related funding under the proposed budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 include the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy, as well as the Food and Drug Administration.

But two Department of Health and Human Services' units that regulate health IT security and privacy matters - the Office for Civil Rights and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT - would see their budgets cut under the president's budget.
