The CIA has made investing in technology to prevent and fight cyber 
threats as one of its three main priorities in a five-year strategic 
plan unveiled this week.

The move is in line with a government-wide ramp-up in cybersecurity 
efforts across all agencies that have responsibility for protecting 
critical infrastructure in the United States, such as the Department of 
Homeland Security and the National Security Agency.

CIA 2015, released this week, is a three-pillar blueprint for the 
agency's next five years. The goal of the plan is to ensure that the 
agency remains in step with current national security challenges, such 
as cyber threats and so-called "dangerous technology," according to a 
press statement.

Indeed, industry experts agree that the threat of cyber attacks on the 
U.S. is on the rise, and a recent survey found that a majority of 
federal CIOs believe a major attack is imminent.
