The House Armed Services Committee approved a $52 billion budget for the Pentagon’s cybersecurity operations in a legislation review Wednesday.

According to TheHill.com:

The legislation, which covers the Pentagon’s initiatives on counterterrorism, counterproliferation, defense intelligence, irregular warfare, and cyber operations, fully funds the department’s roughly $52 billion request for information technology efforts, including $5.1 billion for U.S. Cyber Command.

FCW.com reports that the defense authorization bill “‘fully’ supports the broader IT requests in President Barack Obama’s budget and tasks the Government Accountability Office with reporting on insider threats to IT systems.”
