How the USAF is Addressing Cyber Vulnerability Across Fielded Weapon Systems
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
In the 2016 NDAA, congress mandated a cyber-vulnerability assessment against fielded DOD weapon systems. The USAF assigned the bulk of its work to the 47 Cyberspace Test Squadron. We have developed and successfully field-tested a methodology to answer 3 key questions. 1) How do you characterize cyber vulnerability when the system under test is not a traditional computer network? 2) How do you "rack and stack" criticality of potential vulnerability within programs constraints of Cost, Risk and Schedule? 3) Once an organization has its “arms” wrapped around the cyber risk proposition, how does that organization best address this risk within program constraints of Cost, Risk and Schedule?

With cyber security concerns affecting all sections of an economy, this methodology can be re-contextualize and scaled for the commercial world to help any business approach its hidden (but actual) cyber risk proposition. It can help any business “rack and stack” its cyber risk criticality and begin addressing that risk in both its IP based and non-IP based business critical systems.

This presentation will layout our approach and suggest ways it can be adjusted for the commercial world to help address cyber security risk, risk mitigation and how the acquisition cycle of new components/hardware can be adjusted to better “bake in” cyber security in for future business acquisition.
