Critical Infrastructure Protection Program: Strategy for 2009 and Beyond
DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON DC CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER
Pagination or Media Count:
The Department of the Navy DON relies on a network of physical and cyber infrastructure so critical that its degradation, exploitation, or destruction could have a debilitating effect on the DONs ability to project, support, and sustain its forces and operations worldwide. This critical infrastructure includes DON and non-DON domestic and foreign infrastructures essential to planning, mobilizing, deploying, executing, and sustaining U.S. military operations on a global basis. Mission Assurance is a process to ensure that assigned tasks or duties can be performed in accordance with the intended purpose or plan. It is made more difficult due to the increased interconnectivity and interdependency of systems and networks. DON critical infrastructures, both physical and cyber, even if degraded, must be available to meet the requirements of multiple, dynamic, and divergent missions. Protecting DON critical assets and ensuring the availability of its mission essential functions is the key tenet of the DON Critical Infrastructure Protection CIP Program. The demand for resources to protect DON critical infrastructure far exceeds available resources and the foreseeable future reflects little change in that posture. However, the limited availability of resources in no way diminishes the need to ensure that infrastructure assets critical to the execution of Navy and Marine Corps missions are available. The DON will employ a risk management process to guide investment and resourcing decisions to meet mission execution requirements -- both tactical and strategic.
