The Army Unified Network Plan (AUNP) addresses Army information technology and the network in a comprehensive approach to enable Multi-Domain Operations (MDO). The AUNP establishes five lines of effort (LOE), number three specifically being Security and Survivability—Commander’s Freedom of Action in Cyberspace. To support LOE 3, it was imperative to reform and operationalize cybersecurity processes and the way the Army manages risk. Operationalizing cybersecurity is being implemented through the Army’s Risk Management Framework (RMF) 2.0.  Presenters will explain how RMF 2.0 shifts from a... ...read more...

              Today it's no longer sufficient to have a good cybersecurity program in place. You need to adapt to the new norm of today's threat landscape. Organizations must assume that they will be breached and impacted by cybers attacks, but they need to support their mission and business continuity. Cyber resilience is a shift to enable organizations to put "shock absorbers" in place to withstand this volatility. In this session, Mr. Wisseman will share how cybersecurity needs to evolve in organizations so that they be better equipped to "pivot" at scale and adapt to adverse cyber events such as hacking, ransomware,... ...read more...

                    A comprehensive security risk analysis is a vital component of any sound business plan. Too often, business leaders underestimate its importance and security practitioners undersell the business implications of a thorough security risk analysis. Falling into either of these traps places your risk analysis, and ultimately your business operations, at risk of failing to realize their full potential.  This session will review best practices for defining and measuring key risk variables such as Threats, Vulnerabilities, Impact, and Likelihood, how to combine them, and how to effectively communicate the analysis to stakeholders.  Aided by the perspective of an experienced security and business professional,... ...read more...

                                                      As the electromagnetic spectrum becomes more and more critical to both Army and adversary operations, it is necessary to better understand and visualize the electromagnetic environment as well as dynamically control friendly emitters under various conditions. This need is further amplified by the increasing demand for spectrum resources at home and abroad especially with respect to commercial spectrum auctions such as AWS-3, AMBIT, EMBRS, and future shared bands. Naturally, this introduces the need for intelligent and dynamic spectrum management systems that can easily monitor and quickly adapt to changes in the electromagnetic environment. To address this need, Peraton Labs is... ...read more...

Applying the granularity of Privileged Access Management (PAM) to achieve zero trust objectives ensures all access is appropriate, managed, and documented, regardless of how the perimeter has been redefined. To stay agile, agencies must leverage Zero Trust principals to never trust, always verify, and only allow access when contextual parameters are met. Leveraging PAM and robust identity security strategies enables agencies to move from a network-based approach to a data... ...read more...

Utilizing open-source components to accelerate the development process has proven to have great advantages, which is why a staggering 98% of all code bases rely on them. However, supply chains have many blind spots or cracks that attackers can take advantage of (e.g., Solarwinds SUNBURST, and Log4Shell). Future supply chain security will move beyond Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) scanning of the software you consume. It will encompass attack vectors such as malicious code injected in the source code you develop; the integrity of the... ...read more...

In 2019, the U.S. government accounted for 5.6 percent of data breaches and 2.1 percent of all exposed records. It is imperative the US Government secures citizens’ information and federal agencies must continue to deliver services, regardless of cyber-attacks seeking disruption of those services.  Fortunately, significant strides have been made to ensure just that. The Biden Administration’s budget request includes roughly $10.9 billion for civilian cybersecurity-related activities, which represents an 11% increase compared to 2022. To date, over a billion dollars has been awarded through NITAAC for cybersecurity solutions including... ...read more...

Coalition Interoperability also starts with identification, authentication, and authorization. Considering the United States conducts operations with Joint and Coalition partners, the ability to securely communicate is based on the same principles. Team GDIT’s solution built for the DISA’s Enterprise ICAM capability is a baseline that can help build trust in Coalition environments. By having control of identity, provisioning, governance, and authorization, ICAM, as a practice, becomes the baseline for Zero Trust, network micro segmentation, data protection, and Secure Access Services Edge. This identity-based approach allows... ...read more...

While most people believe Zero Trust is a better security framework than the "walled garden" approach, there are several issues that need to be addressed before Zero Trust becomes reality. Governance, policy, funding, and the technical implementations of a Zero Trust architecture require substantial work and investigation before we can realize the benefits and move beyond the paradigm of "trusted" networks to a more resilient and robust... ...read more...

The data transport architecture should provide guaranteed delivery, even in contested or denied, disrupted, intermittent or limited bandwidth (DDIL) environments. These requirements can be addressed by a Universal Data Distribution (UDD) architecture. UDD provides a wide range of extensible capabilities ranging from real-time data ingestion, edge processing, transformation, and routing through to descriptive, prescriptive, and predictive analytics.

In DoD, this effort is complicated by decentralized data sources, tactical networks experiencing intermittent comms and of course multi domain networks at various classification levels. While traditional approaches to situational awareness typically involve a data lake approach which requires selective forwarding of data to centralized locations, valuable insights could be lost because data is typically restricted by classification domain and not all the data is accessible.

These tools require a variety of data sources including logs, but an ongoing critical need is the packet data itself. To enable access of critical packet data to a central platform, the program will need to deploy an intelligent high availability security visibility architecture that supports both inline and out-of-band packet processing across a distributed infrastructure.

In fact, 71% of organizations today feel that their data is growing at a concerning rate. Federal organizations are facing the challenge of defending enterprises at the multi-million endpoint scale and traditional approaches to security fall apart at the size of Government. This requires new methods for collecting and detecting threats at the petabyte to exabyte scale. Organizations, such as the Army, are not immune to this challenge, but rather more susceptible as the needs of the networks must always match the needs of the Warfighter.
