 DISA unveils new cybersecurity review

The Defense Information Systems Agency unveiled a cybersecurity review process on May 9 that takes an agile, “outside-in” assessment of the resources and technologies the Department of Defense Information Network (DODIN) needs to defend itself against attack.

DISA calls the effort NSCSAR, short for NIPRNet/SIPRNet Cyber Security Architecture Review.

Pete Dinsmore, DISA’s risk technology executive, said the framework looks at all aspects of cybersecurity, from endpoints to the internet.

In a May 9 article on Chips, the Department of the Navy’s IT magazine, Dinsmore was quoted as saying, “NSCSAR is trying to answer three questions: Which cybersecurity solution do we need, how much is enough, and where can we take risk?”
