Cyber Asset Reduction and Security Task Force
Over the past year, the Cyber Asset Reduction and Security (CARS) Task Force has delivered a common, well-defended infrastructure, implemented several enterprise security solutions, and provided unprecedented visibility into IT inventories, expenditures and operational capabilities across the Navy. By rapidly migrating legacy infrastructure to enterprise networks, instituting a rigorous excepted network approval process, and enforcing Navy-wide enterprise consolidation, excess capacity was eliminated, security posture was improved, and the Navy is better positioned to attain the vision of the Naval Networking Environment. Through their efforts, the CARS team heightened the Navy's enterprise IT perspective, dramatically improved network security posture, and made a lasting impact on Navy cyber readiness.
