Title Assessment of Security Within the Department of Defense - Security Policy.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 18p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract Security spans the entire Department and is necessary for the Department to protect its resources. Department of Defense security disciplines have as one fundamental purpose the protection of DoD critical assets and must be applied in a fully balanced and coordinated way. Actions taken in one area, for example, physical security, have a direct bearing upon actions taken in other areas such as information security. When security policy functions are fragmented, the chances of inconsistent and ineffective protection levels are increased. Employees in security positions, whether it is security administrators, security chiefs, or security clerks, are critical to the national defense and deserve security policy that is clear, concise, and consistently applied to all echelons of security. In the absence of security policy that is streamlined, updated and harmonized, organizations will waste resources trying to comply with guidance that is potentially redundant, outdated and confusing.
