The Defense Information Systems Agency wants to establish a global information technology and communication services infrastructure as part of DISA’s new five-year strategic plan, C4ISR & Networks reported Tuesday.

Amber Corrin writes the framework also calls for the agency to minimize redundant technological processes and strengthen cybersecurity of the Department of Defense Information Network.

“We must sustain our operations and defenses before, during and after an attack by reducing the attack surface, continually improving defensive cyberspace operations and effectively commanding and controlling the DODIN,” said DISA Director Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins.

DISA also vowed to continue a push to implement joint regional security stacks globally as well as update mobility and collaboration tools.

The agency noted computing, storage, networking, information sharing and mobile systems as its capability focus areas for the next five years.
