ABSTRACT

Defense Science Board Task Force Report On Cyber Defense Management   [open pdf - 2MB]

"In October 2014, the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD(AT&L)) requested that the Defense Science Board (DSB) investigate ways to improve the Department of Defense's overall management processes for providing cyber security in its systems and networks. The Board assembled a Task Force composed of national leaders in information technology (IT) and cyber security. The Task Force met from January 2015 through November 2015 to deliberate on cyber security for the Department of Defense (DoD). [...] The highly publicized government and commercial cyber breaches have driven a dramatic increase in general awareness and concern for cyber threats, system vulnerabilities, and the potential for damage from losing personal information stored within a system. This awareness has resulted in increased demand for more secure products and services. Recently, cyber security insurance rates have experienced an increase averaging more than 30 percent from the previous year. This may reduce 'papering over' the security problem."
