Threats against the Departments networks and information systems IS continue to increase. It is time for Commanders and Supervisors at all levels, including the operational level, to lead engagement in improving cybersecurity readiness across the force. Inspection reports and lessons learned from recent network intrusions have revealed Department-wide, systemic shortfalls in implementing basic cybersecurity requirements established in policies, directives, and orders. Most successful cyberspace intrusions exploit preventable and generally well-known vulnerabilities. The mission is at risk, and every individual must understand their roles, responsibilities, and actions necessary to maintain a high, persistent state of cybersecurity readiness required to deliver mission assurance.Purpose. In coordination between Commander, USCYBERCOM and the DoD CIO, this Implementation Plan directs Commanders and Supervisors to implement the four prioritized Lines of Effort herein to mitigate risks and operationalize cyber readiness reporting for the information systems they own, manage, or lease for mission assurance through DRRS.
