DOD Requests Additional Budget for Cyber Operations in FY25

The Department of Defense is seeking a budget about a billion dollars higher compared to what it received in fiscal year 2024 for its cyberspace activities in fiscal year 2025.

A senior DOD official said that the FY25 cyber operations will focus on three areas: cybersecurity, cyberspace operations and cyber research and development.

According to the FY2025 budget request unveiled on Monday, the department will allocate more than $977 million for zero-trust transition and nearly $300 million for modernized identity, credential and access management, among other things, C4ISRNET reported.

The additional budget will be used to protect the agency against cyber incidents, of which it has been targeted more than 12,000 times, according to a Government Accountability Office report.

The department has been engaged in various efforts to improve its cyberposture through the years. DOD Principal Deputy Chief Information Officer Leslie Beavers said the department is investing more in modernization and cybersecurity to defend against attacks targeting U.S. national security.
