The U.S has experienced numerous strategy assessments, with respect to cybersecurity of the national critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR). This is primarily due to the recurring realization of, but failure to address, root issues creating a clear disparity between the strategic national requirements and DHS execution of its mandate regarding the reactionary protection of CI/KR. This thesis compiles: (1) the current and past literature involving the evolution of critical infrastructure protection, as it relates to cybersecurity; (2) how the current administration is addressing it; and (3) the various roles and authorities allocated to the various major executive agencies. This thesis concludes by providing eight specific recommendations with respect to improving the cybersecurity of the national CI/KR.
