Jennifer Edgin: Navy, Marines Adapt Commercial Techniques for Continuous Cyber Tests

cybersecurityThe Naval Surface Warfare Center – Crane Division is working with the Marine Corps Systems Command‘s Program Manager Marine Intelligence to perform proof-of-concept tests on information security measures.

NSWC Crane said Thursday it will utilize a virtual private network and the Defense Department‘s cybersecurity range to conduct continuous scans on PMMI tactical intelligence systems.

“The virtual approach … marries best commercial practices with traditional standards to continually assess the security posture in a resource efficient manner which is transformative for our baseline management,” said Jennifer Edgin, senior technical adviser to the director of intelligence at U.S. Marine Corps headquarters.

NSWC Crane said the tests simulate real-world scenarios to help identify vulnerabilities and develop fixes before system deployment in support of the Risk Management Framework process.

The service expects this program to help meet emerging requirements and facilitate efficiency in life-cycle maintenance.
