Cyber pros, single security architecture among JIE-related priorities

As the Defense Department enters into an era of shared services and joint programs many of which center on the Joint Information Environment, a new generation of priorities are emerging, according to one top DoD official.

The list of new-look must-haves for the Pentagon is not short, but in some cases, addressing certain priorities will have widespread benefits. Among them: an enterprisewide, single security architecture for DoD networks, and a force of cyber professionals to defend those networks.

The lack of both of those today leaves the military vulnerable, Lt. Gen. Mark Bowman, Joint Staff J6, said May 14 at the AFCEA Joint Information Environment symposium in Baltimore.

“Independent information assurance provides gaps, voids and seams exploited by the bad guy every day,” Bowman said. “We’ve got to continue to develop and establish a single security architecture. Through the single security architecture, with standardised networks, we can help reduce that cyberattack surface.”

The lack of visibility into networks today limits defensibility, Bowman said. But defenses also are limited by a shortage of cyber professionals operating on DoD networks – a problem that Pentagon leaders need to be addressing earlier in the education and training processes, he added.
