DISA’s Roger Greenwell: Diverse Systems Across DoD Makes Network Monitoring a Challenge

cyberRoger Greenwell, the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s cybersecurity chief, has said the existence of diverse software systems across the Defense Department makes network monitoring a challenge, Fedscoop reported Friday.

Grayson Ullman writes Greenwell told the Intel-sponsored “Security Through Innovation Summit” that every DoD service has a different system which can hold up traditional continuous diagnostics and monitoring functions such as automation.

“We have one of everything. Someone made it, DoD bought it, and we might still be running it today,” Greenwell said.

Greenwell noted one solution could be to revert to some basic principles through the DoD Scorecard initiative, where each service or agency under the department is given a score based on achievements of core cybersecurity tenets.
