Abstract:

The process of updating and maintaining policy updates at the local implementation level is currently a time-consuming manual process with vast room for improvement. A timely and accurate means of conveying policy updates from the higher levels in the government to the lower levels is needed. This thesis describes a taxonomy as a first step to remedying the problem of maintaining current policies when upper-level policies are updated. This is especially important in regards to Information Assurance policies because of the fast-changing nature of the technology involved. A taxonomy was defined and then implemented utilizing wiki technology for demonstration purposes. This research is further discussed in terms of its portability across the government as a means to automatically convey policy changes from upper levels to lower levels in order to maintain responsive forces backed up by current policies.
