OMB Memo M-16-04, Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan (CSIP) for the Federal Civilian Government (October 30, 2015), resulted from a comprehensive review in 2015 of the Federal Government's cybersecurity policies, procedures, and practices by the Cybersecurity Sprint Team.

  1. Prioritized Identification and Protection of high value information and assets;
  2. Timely Detection of and Rapid Response to cyber incidents;
  3. Rapid Recovery from incidents when they occur and Accelerated Adoption of lessons learned from the [Cybersecurity] Sprint assessment;
