The budget proposed by President Barack Obama includes funding aimed at improving the security of U.S. private and public computer networks.
The document called for $355 million in funding for the Department of Homeland Security to make private and public sector cyber infrastructure more resilient and secure.
The money would help support the operations of the National Cyber Security Division, as well as initiatives under the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative, according to the document.
In addition, the administration said it would put substantial funding for cybersecurity efforts into the national intelligence program, but gave no details since that funding is kept secret.
That money would be used for an integrated and holistic approach to address current cybersecurity threats, anticipate future threats, and continue innovative public-private partnerships, it said.
