An office within the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and the U.S. Navy's Information Warfare Training Group have partnered to align and synchronize the service branch's cyber assessments and monitoring.
The FCC said Tuesday its Office of Compliance and Assessment and IWTG entered into the partnership under the Command Cyber Operational Readiness Inspections program.
“The Navy has a significant challenge analyzing all of the different cyber assessments and inspections done by various organizations, because there is no aligned effort," said Capt. Kristian Kearton, director at OCA.
He added that the partnership aims to synchronize assessments, standards and schedules of the FCC, IWTG and other commands.
The OCA and the IWTG jointly conduct CCORI activities to streamline training and to ease the burden on ships in line with the Navy's optimized fleet response plan.
Command cyber readiness inspections work to verify network compliance based on DoD and Navy requirements, and provide recommendations to help the service branch bolster networks.
