Data requirements coming

Gen. John Hyten, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said this week that by the end of spring the military will get a "strategic directive" defining data requirements that will lay the foundation for how the Department of Defense will use data at scale. Developed by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) which Hyten leads, the document will define data requirements for all the services with the hope of enabling the type of rapid data-sharing and processing needed to field modern concepts of operations and artificial intelligence-enabled warfare. “We have a chance to actually stay ahead of our adversary…to dominate data,” Hyten said.

Evidence Act progress

Federal agencies are really seeing momentum around evidence-based policymaking, according to the Evidence Team lead at the Office of Management and Budget. All agencies submitted their interim learning agendas, first annual evaluation plans and interim capacity assessments in September, as mandated by OMB guidance stemming from the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act, said Diana Epstein. “For the most part agencies have named their designated officials: the evaluation officers, the statistical officials and the chief data officers,” Epstein said during a Data Coalition event Thursday. “The councils for each of these officials have been meeting regularly, and we’ve had some great cross-council collaboration.” Dave Nyczepir has this one.

Final CMMC rule nears

The final Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) rule for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is coming in the next month or so. Katie Arrington, the Pentagon’s chief information security officer for acquisition and sustainment, detailed that the program will get its final tweaks within the next 30-40 days. "You shouldn't be waiting to build [cybersecurity] costs in" to rates, Arrington said to contractors Thursday. More from Jackson.

TIC 3.0 use cases

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued the first two finalized Trusted Internet Connections 3.0 use cases Wednesday to help agencies secure external connections to federal networks. The Traditional TIC Use Case details the “castle-and-moat” security architecture that most major agencies have used for a decade, while the Branch Office Use Case outlines networking directly to the cloud or an external trust zone — rather than directing internet traffic through a TIC access point or headquarters first. And there could be more coming later this year. More from Dave.
