Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) is a government cybersecurity effort that aims to improve network and data security throughout the Federal Government. Through a comprehensive program that provides direction and an execution framework for agencies to implement a minimum boundary security standard, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the General Services Administration (GSA) oversee the TIC initiative. The TIC Initiative was first introduced in 2008 with the goal of standardizing perimeter security for the federal enterprise and consolidating government networks.
