Tutorial Information

New for GSAW2004!

Tutorial IV
Information Assurance for Ground Systems
and the Global Information Grid
Half Day
8:00 - 11:30 A.M.
This tutorial presents an overview of the DoD’s approach to information assurance (IA). Recently signed DoD policy outlines a new framework for achieving IA, describes responsibilities and procedures for its implementation, and functions as an umbrella under which existing and forthcoming, lower level IA-related policy will be integrated. This tutorial describes how DoD Directive 8500.1 and Instruction 8500.2 implement a Global Information Grid (GIG), defense in depth approach for IA through integration of processes and mechanisms, including system certification and accreditation, IA product acquisition and evaluation, and PKI.
