ABSTRACT

Closing the Gap: Cybersecurity for U.S. Forces and Commands   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the thesis abstract: "Cyberattacks are an everyday event in the Department of Defense (DoD) and proper application of cybersecurity is the key to mission assurance for Combatant Commands and the military services. There are multiple cybersecurity policies and programs working to defend the network in depth, but there remain gaps and seams for adversaries to exploit due to a lack of knowledge, understanding, or concern from users at all levels of command. This paper will broadly examine the cyberspace environment, U.S. cybersecurity policy, and cybersecurity compliance, specifically using the Command Cyber Readiness Inspection (CCRI) program as an example of how to close some of the gaps and seams in DoDs cyber defense."
