Information Technology (IT) systems, particularly those involving network services, are inherently complex and must meet critical mission availability, security, and performance requirements. Persistent adversaries leverage rapidly advancing technologies and system complexities to exploit and disrupt networks and to extract or manipulate information. Balancing the need to understand and manage the technical parameters of the enterprise network with the need to protect network infrastructure and information while maintaining connectivity and availability of services through a cyber attack is vital. Experience in risk and impact management and an ability to select suppliers and service providers who have a sophisticated understanding of and deep experience managing, complex networks will mitigate cyber threats and prevent unacceptable damage to U.S. national security.
