9th SC (A) IA Cyber Readiness ROC Drill synopsis

LTC Steve Maddry, IAPM 9th SC

During 2009, inspections conducted by DISA and the DA IG showed weaknesses in the IA posture for organizations across the Army.  These results prompted a partnership between NETCOM and the DA IG to look into solutions to fix these weaknesses.  In March 2010, NETCOM conducted a Rehearsal Of Concept (ROC) Drill, which leveraged the experience of IA professionals across all Army commands.  Our objective:  to identify and propose solutions to IA shortfalls, gaps, processes/procedures (TTPs), enforcement and Strategic Communications.  The endstate was to build a plan, based on tangible actions, to strengthen the Army’s IA posture.  The results from the week long exercise:  30 gaps were identified within the following areas:  Certificate of Networthiness, DIACAP, IAVA noncompliance, Individual accountability in NETOPS incidents, and reintegration of a Brigade Combat Team into an installation.  Each gap had several proposed solutions, and 10 of the gaps had proposed “quick win” solutions – fixes that could be implemented within 90 days of the ROC drill.  This presentation is a summary of the results of the first of potentially several future ROC drills.

The presenter will discuss future initiatives planned for the Joint environment and demonstrate use of Web Risk Management System or WebRMS technology and other technologies that efficiently streamline the review process and enable collaboration.
