This project brought together a design team of 25 participants from industry expertise to cadets and active duty operators, with a variety of expertise including cyber security professionals, economists, systems engineers, business managers, operations research analysts, and software developers.
When considering how to overcome these issues, the design team identified four key themes that were addressed:
- Mission Dependencies
This ecosystem provides support aids to overcome communication and language differences to maximize the speed with which a user can consume risk information to make informed decisions.
Cyber Risk Ecosystem:
Dependency Mapping: Functional Mission Analysis (FMA) is a disciplined way to tease out these linkages and integrate that metadata into our reporting systems and decisions.
Communication and Education: Provides quick communications methods, information pushes, tailored delivery of information, and basic education.
Crowd Sourcing: Crowd-sourced data facilitates mission assurance by identifying issues quickly, providing guidance toward systems fixes to restore systems, and providing guidance on alternative solutions to keep missions resilient.
