Alfred Rivera: DISA to Increase Military Cloud Security Oversight

1 min read

cloud securityU.S. Defense Information Systems Agency officials have said the organization will continue to assess and manage security of commercial cloud offerings for defense organizations, C4ISR & Networks reported Friday.

Amber Corrin writes Alfred Rivera, acting director for strategic planning and information at DISA, told reporters last week the agency will give up its role as the Defense Department‘s cloud broker to concentrate on cloud security and integration work.

“I think we’re going to continue to play very big role from the cloud broker perspective in that respect as cloud server provider, [and] also be a vehicle for network access to cloud service providers [that is] available, secure and reliable,” Rivera added, according to the report.

DoD planned an Oct. 31 release of a new policy to allow military agencies to acquire cloud services and accelerate their cloud adoption.

DISA Chief Technology Officer Dave Mihelcic said the agency will still develop security requirements, design access-point architectures and evaluate products under DoD’s cloud program, according to the article.
