ABSTRACT

Securing High Value Assets   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Introduction: "High value assets (HVAs) are 'Federal information systems, information, and data for which an unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction could cause a significant impact to the United States' national security interests, foreign relations, economy, or to the public confidence, civil liberties, or public health and safety of the American people.' HVAs enable mission-essential functions and operations, provide services to citizens, generate and disseminate information, and facilitate greater productivity and economic prosperity. Agencies are responsible for the information technology (IT) assets and the personal information entrusted to their organizations by hundreds of millions of Americans. A strategy that frames, assesses, responds to, and monitors risk to HVAs is thus essential. Such a strategy needs to prevent compromise and loss of data, as well as disruption of critical services and operations involving HVAs."
