John Hickey, risk management executive and chief information officer at Defense Information Systems Agency, has cited the Joint Regional Security Stacks program as the agencyâs top cybersecurity priority at present, C4ISR & Networks reported Thursday.
Hickey described JRSS as the regional security capability the Defense Department uses to protect what he calls the east-west traffic from within the DoD Information Network, Amber Corrin reports.
âThe ability to change signatures, the enemyâs ability to change how theyâre coming at us, thatâs high on our list from a priority standpoint,â Hickey told C4ISR & Networks.
âWe look at everything all the way down to the endpoint,â he added.
Corrin writes DISA also focuses on protecting Internet access points as part of the agencyâs cybersecurity goals.
âWe need the capacity to stay up with those signatures, and we use big data analytics to analyze changes in the environment that we can recognize from the signatures, and maybe deviations or derivatives of that signature, to stay up on what could come next,â Hickey told C4ISR & Networks.
