Tutorial E
Information Assurance for DoD Ground Systems
Half Day
8 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.
A new series of DoD issuances provides an updated framework for achieving Information Assurance (IA) in the Global Information Grid (GIG). This tutorial starts with an overview IA policy and procedures applicable to all DoD information systems followed by an examination of DoD IA policy specific to space systems. Next, two new IA processes - DIACAP and CDS - will be presented. DIACAP is the forthcoming IA certification and accreditation process and is the replacement for DITSCAP. The Cross Domain Solutions (CDS) process, which is an integral part of IA certification and accreditation, addresses the interfaces between information systems in different domains. This tutorial offers significant value in contributing to the successful space system acquisition and implementation of information assurance.

Who Should Attend:
The ideal student is someone who needs to specify, design, operate, or evaluate a DoD network or information system. A goal of this tutorial is to provide a high level understanding of the DoD’s new IA direction and primary policy and processes associated with it.
