CISA Strategic Intent

Revision Date

This document lays out the strategic vision and operational priorities of the CISA Director. It provides a general approach for how we execute our responsibilities and serves as a reference point for our employees and partners to guide our work and create unity of effort. It aims to position us to successfully meet our mission in the coming years and decades. It serves as the interim strategy as we develop a longer-term strategic plan.

The common framework of goals and outcomes helps organize our mission execution and inform management decisions—including operations planning, requirements generation, budget formulation, and performance management. These are high-level outcomes that we will constantly seek to achieve; specific actions and milestones will appear in operational and organizational plans. These goals and outcomes give us a constant foundation for capability and direction as threats and the mission space dramatically evolve.
