Mission Engineering

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency's (CISA's) Cybersecurity Division (CSD) works collaboratively with public, private, and international entities to improve the cybersecurity posture of the Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB) and other partners by facilitating the integration of various cybersecurity technologies, products, and services. The mission of the Mission Engineering Subdivision (ME) is to acquire, engineer, and provide life cycle support for the capabilities needed to fulfill CSD's mission.

To meet its mission need, ME designs, develops, deploys, and sustains intrusion detection, analytic, and information sharing capabilities that combat and mitigate cyber threats to FCEB information and networks. ME is further emphasizing the evolution of its capabilities to deliver a more integrated set of infrastructure and analytic capabilities that enable efficient and effective cross-CSD mission operations and collaboration.

ME conducts the following activities.

  • Performs strategic planning for CSD mission capabilities and services
    • Investigates technologies, processes, concepts, end items, or system demonstrations, based on cyber needs, used to support the computer network defense missions of CSD
    • Establishes the technical road map and implementation plan for CSD mission infrastructure and analytic capabilities
  • Develops capabilities that support CSD's mission at multiple levels using technology demonstration, integration of existing solutions, and development of new tactics to employ solutions
  • Harnesses current and emerging technologies to provide immediate solutions to the urgent challenges of CSD's mission
