DoD to Include Mobility in Forthcoming Enterprise Cybersecurity Strategy

The Defense Department is set to release an enterprise cybersecurity strategy that aims to address the civilian and military use of mobile products and services, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

DoD Chief Information Officer Dana Deasy noted during the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Forecast to Industry event that mobility is a critical element in daily life and that it will be an important capability for warfighters in tactical missions.

He added that there is a need to support mobility in some way to enable the secure transmission of data from one device to another.

DoD will add its recently released Cybersecurity Analysis and Review framework in the forthcoming strategy, which will be issued by Deasy’s office.

Lisa Belt, acting director of DISA’s cyber development directorate, noted that the action plan will define the cybersecurity environment in its “complexity”.

She added that modified acquisition strategies will arise in cybersecurity in the next three to six months.
