August 11th at 11:05am

The DoD GIG IA Portfolio Management Office (GIAP) has learned through experience that mission critical networks are contested, violated, infiltrated and penetrated, leading to significant risks to US interests. The U.S. critical infrastructure has evolved from a ‘network enabled’ position to one that is now ‘network dependent.’ No aspect of the national critical infrastructure operates without extensive use of information technology, and it is this very fact that makes our networks such a high priority target for adversaries.

The need for secure, self-aware, proactively managed defense mechanisms has never been more critical. Commercially available technologies, when combined with research and development done by both the government and the private sector, represent the best possible approach for combating the types of threats our critical infrastructure is facing today.
