Bush backs boost for cybersecurity

Tuesday, 8 February 2005, 10:58 AM EST

President Bush's proposed budget for fiscal 2006 would spend 7 percent more on information technology security year-over-year and add cybersecurity to the stable of cross-agency lines of business.

The budget request calls for a 7.2 percent increase in IT security spending for the coming year to $1.685 billion, up from the $1.572 billion congressional appropriations approved for fiscal 2005. The greatest change, in percentage and absolute terms, occurs in the Justice Department. Officials from that Cabinet agency want about $254.6 million in fiscal 2006, or 20.7 percent more than the $210.9 million approved for this fiscal year.
