                In recent years, China has been more aggressive in the Indo-Pacific region and across the globe. Russia and other countries such as North Korea and Iran continue to present new threats. In this panel, warfare community leaders will discuss how they are improving capabilities within their man, train, and equip charter to deter potential adversaries, and if necessary, be prepared to prevail should conflict arise. However, are we moving rapidly enough? ...

                  Securing DoD Enterprise Innovation with ICAM Agency modernization, expanding cloud deployments, and distributed workforces create new planes of privilege for adversaries to exploit. When designing the future state of The Defense Department’s complex enterprise network, a least-privilege approach is critical to keep pace with adversaries and lower your attack surface. With users and devices now accessing critical information, systems, and applications from anywhere, the mindset must be to never trust, always verify, and only allow privileged access when needed or contextual parameters are met.

                    Software is the glue that connects people and systems, across every industry, and enables them to solve problems. Given its pervasiveness, even if your organization does not produce its own software, you can no longer afford to ignore the associated cybersecurity risks. Just like modern manufacturing, software developers reuse existing third-party components to reduce costs. A custom software project can incorporate hundreds of such third-party components, forming a software supply chain. The most popular third-party software components are used in thousands of applications, including defense and critical infrastructure, and can present a global Achilles heel.

                            The cloud represents many inversions: from one data center to many centers of data, from applications and data and workers on the inside to the outside, from security departments approving everything to departments being bypassed. Security controls built for earlier eras are blind to today’s traffic; security practices designed in earlier eras are ineffective with today’s architectures. Legacy network security models assume a rigid perimeter and implicitly trust everything inside—assumptions that leave you vulnerable when the internet replaces the LAN. A new model is required, one with an inversion of its own: from trust but verify to verify then trust. Zero... ...read more...

Thus, a new attack surface within the software supply chain has been exposed and is driving new requirements and shifting the focus of cyber protection across government, critical infrastructure industries, and open source/commercial software producers. In response, President Biden has issued an executive order for improving cyber security, and recently OMB and CISA have recently introduced follow-on guidance for public comment.
