Cybersecurity

The NOCIC Value Added Approach

In 2008, the NCOIC Technical Council has begun to implement a
program of work composed of three components:



Synthesis of cybersecurity pattern content

-

focusing on active and
passive defense of information technology and network infrastructure

as a risk managed ecosystem



Identification of key technologies

which have promise of improving

BOTH the protection of networks AND the sharing of information




Facilitation of national and international multilateral
“conversations”

on cybersecurity which will ultimately reflect the


aggregate perspectives of individual NCOIC advisory agencies



This approach is supported by the NCOIC

international Advisory Council

government labs.



Net
-
Centric Assessment

FT: Develops tools for use by systems engineers to determine the level of
Netcentricity that has been achieved in systems. The Net
-
Centric Assessment Tool (NCAT™) exists as both
an engine for performing assessments, and independent content files for use in operational domains.



NIF Architecture Concepts

FT: Develops enabling guidance that system engineers can use to develop
systems
-
of
-
systems capabilities. This construct consists of architectural principles, patterns, and Protocol
Functional Collections (PFCs).



Requirements Validation

What NCOIC members are saying:



"If you work in government today,

it's a challenge

to review all the good IT
-
related ideas coming from
industry.


NCOIC was created to bring potential solutions to decision
-
makers more quickly.


This is why
it's

important for government organizations to join the NCOIC.


Through government
membership,

our

industry consortium

gains

first
-
hand benefit from the customers' perspectives,
and

government has an opportunity to influence industry thinking in

early product developmental
stages.


The end result is that NCOIC will be better products

delivered

faster
--

a benefit to both
government and industry.“
Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege, USAF (Ret), Deloitte & Touche LLP and former
Director, DISA.



“Working in NCOIC provides a unique education in NCO/NEC concepts, standards, and technologies, as

door to teaming opportunities to Bearing Point; NCOIC offers access to senior government decision
makers.”
Paul MacGreevy, Bearing Point Executive Council Member



"The NCOIC is the organisation within which governments and industry are working together to accelerate
global interoperability in network centric operations. We are all committed to facilitating this work through
technical cooperation and information sharing."
Dr. Edgar Buckley, Thales, NCOIC European Executive
Coordinator and former Assistant Secretary General Defence Planning and Operations, NATO



“The American Red Cross is very pleased to be a member of the NCOIC because we support the work the
Consortium is doing to enable emergency communications interoperability across the defense
environment and with the public safety and emergency responder sectors. NCOIC efforts will improve the
ability of emergency response teams around the world to more quickly and effectively respond to natural
and man
-
made disasters. The result will be lives saved that would otherwise be lost, and a greater sense
of global partnership to enable public preparedness and response.”
Steve Cooper, former CIO, American
Red Cross


What NCO stakeholders are saying:


"We have a responsibility to let industry know what we want and establish our operating
environment. Industry's role is to come up with the solutions to the problems we anticipate.
NCOIC is helping to establish the standards to meet these challenges head
-
on.”
General
Lance Smith, USAF,

NATO Supreme Allied Commander Transformation



“NCOIC and DISA are pursuing similar and complementary paths in developing network
centric capabilities and addressing information assurance challenges. We are looking
forward to working side
-
by
-
side as an NCOIC member with the many world
-
class technology
organizations actively involved in NCOIC’s groundbreaking work.”
Lt Gen. Charles E.
Croom, Jr, USAF, former director of DISA



“In cooperation between NATO and industry, NCOIC is proving to be of critical importance!”
Marshall Billingslea, ASG/DI NATO
,
ACT Industry Day, AFCEA
-
Chapter Europe


“NCOIC

will illuminate the issues that help decision
-
makers set policies on interoperability
frameworks. Key examples involve policy decisions on the degree to which

new
systems

need to

be backward compatible,

and the advisability of

upgrading old systems to
be interoperable with new capabilities.”


Dr. Paul Kaminski, former Undersecretary of
Defense, Acquisition & Technology





“NATO can only be successful in this NNEC enterprise if NATO and its Allies work together
with industry from the beginning.”
Major General Georges d’Hollander, vice
-
chairman of the
NATO Consultation, Command and Control Headquarters Board
