Today, the Department of Defense (DoD) released its Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cybersecurity (CS) Strategy, an actionable approach to maturing a more resilient Joint Force and Defense cybersecurity ecosystem.  Spanning Fiscal Year 2024 – 2027, the DoD DIB CS Strategy provides a path forward for the Department’s internal and industry-facing cybersecurity activities. 

The Strategy’s vision, mission, goals, and objectives support the directives and priorities of the National Defense Strategy, 2023 National Cybersecurity Strategy, and 2023 DoD Cyber Strategy.  By sharpening the Department’s focus on collaboration with industry partners, the Strategy’s four goals and key objectives will guide DoD’s efforts to defend the nation and maintain our technology advantage:

  1. Strengthen the DoD governance structure for DIB Cybersecurity
  2. Enhance the Cybersecurity posture of DIB contractors
  3. Preserve the resiliency of critical DIB capabilities in a cyber-contested environment
  4. Improve collaboration with DIB.

The Department is working together with the DIB, harnessing the expertise of Industry, academic institutions and research and development organizations to achieve the goals and objectives in this strategy. 

“We have identified opportunities to bolster cybersecurity of our DIB partners, which will improve our overall cybersecurity of the US,” said Deputy Secretary of Defense Hicks.  “As our adversaries continuously seek information about U.S. capabilities, the Department, in coordination with the DIB, must remain resilient against these attacks and succeed through teamwork to defend the Nation.”
