Navy Unveils Cyber Security Architectures and Standards

"The Department of Navy has just developed its first eight of over two dozen planned cybersafe design criteria for critical control and  information systems.  These design criteria will guide every current and future Navy acquisition that involves a computer chip or a network. Industry must have a deep understanding of these new standards to ensure an effective implementation and evolution of these criteria." 

RADM David H. Lewis, USN Commander,  Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command



Be among the first to see and discuss the Navy's recently published cybersecurity architectures and standards for implementation on Navy platforms, networks and systems. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command Chief Engineer, RDML John Ailes, will lead a discussion on the Navy’s approach for developing and promulgating cybersecurity standards that will guide the design, development and production of Navy computer-based systems. The presentation will include an overview of the initial eight standards that have been published. Afterward, attendees will have an opportunity to engage Navy leadership and subject matter experts in a Q&A session regarding Navy cybersecurity.
