Specifically, BOD 19-02 gives government organizations 15 days to address critical vulnerabilities and 30 days for high-severity flaws. The countdown starts when a vulnerability was initially detected, rather than when it was first reported to agencies.

Internet-exposed government systems undergo Cyber Hygiene scanning to help agencies identify vulnerabilities. The recently created Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) provides regular reports to agencies, informing them of the detected flaws, classified based on their CVSSv2 score.

The new BOD 19-02 also instructs the CISA to provide technical expertise and guidance for remediation, and send a monthly report to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to identify trends and challenges and facilitate any policy or budget-related actions that may be required.
