DON CIP: A Comprehensive Solution to Improve Cyber and Physical Security of DON Critical Assets [open pdf - 424KB]
"A primary goal of the Department of the Navy Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) Strategic Plan is 'providing Full Dimensional Protection (FDP) that ensures Naval warfighting effectiveness.' FDP involves three initiatives: Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Information Assurance and Privacy. This article provides an overview on the DON CIP initiative. CIP is mission assurance: the identification, assessment and assurance of cyber and physical assets essential to the mobilization, deployment and sustainment of U.S. military operations. Effective critical infrastructure protection identifies vulnerabilities and risks to critical assets supporting warfighting missions, remediates those validated vulnerabilities to protect against compromise, and, if compromised, minimizes impact to mission performance with effective consequence management plans and procedures."
