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.
