SAME NoVA Post: DTRA Mission Assurance Assessment Presentation
Wed, November 18, 2020
11:45 AM – 1:00 PM EST
Event Description: DTRA NEMA conducts high fidelity assessments that identify vulnerabilities in critical systems, networks, and infrastructure that could be exploited well below the level of armed conflict by state or non-state threat networks or could be significantly impacted by natural or accidental hazardous events. Typical mission assurance assessments are conducted on existing construction that is either aging or was assigned by the installation without a full decomposition of mission requirements.
Given that these facilities were not purpose-built, vulnerabilities often present without the mission owner’s knowledge. While this presentation will introduce the audience to a policy that governs Mission Assurance and its methodology, Don ultimately hopes to impress upon the audience the importance of purpose-built construction and a full mission decomposition when considering infrastructure resiliency and protection.
