What We Did. This is the first in a series of assessments in determine how DoD protects critical program information CPI. The Armys Warfighter Information Network - Tactical WIN-T is the first of three acquisition category ID programs of record to be used as a case study to assess the Departments effectiveness in protecting CPI. We conducted this assessment in coordination with DoD research, development, acquisition, counterintelligence CI, and security subject matter experts. We analyzed key issue areas related to program protection, specifically the ability to identify and protect CPI manage the foreign visit program apply program protection horizontally train its workforce in program protection and optimize intelligence, CI and security resources, threat data, and policies to guide program protection efforts. Because the WIN-T program has no foreign involvement, that issue area was not relevant. We also assessed DoD program protection efforts for standardization of protection processes and their application, oversight of protection processes and responsibility for protection efforts.
