The Department of Defense Cybersecurity Analysis and Review (DoDCAR) is sponsored by the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Officer (CIO) Deputy CIO for Cybersecurity, National Security Agency (NSA) Deputy National Manager for National Security Systems, and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Director. DoDCAR performs threat-based, cybersecurity architecture assessments to ensure DoD leadership has the insight and knowledge to make well-informed, prioritized cybersecurity investment decisions to enable dependable mission execution on the unclassified and secret environments. This approach establishes a threat-based, analysis-driven, repeatable process to synchronize and balance cybersecurity investments, minimize redundancies, eliminate inefficiencies, and improve all-around mission performance. This approach also provides the insight and knowledge necessary to inform updates to the Cybersecurity Reference Architecture (CS RA) and support effective, prioritized integrated cybersecurity capability investments.
