The evolving needs of national defense and the ever-changing cyberspace environment requires developing and reinforcing trusted partnerships to connect and protect the warfighter in cyberspace while contributing to the lethality of the joint fighting force.
The Defense Information Systems Agency and Joint Force Headquarters - DoD Information Network fiscal year (FY) 2019 – 2022 Strategic Plan provides the framework to complete its respective missions in support of the Department of Defense. Its mission is to conduct DoDIN operations for the joint warfighter to enable lethality across all warfighting domains in defense of the nation.
This mission supports the National Defense Strategy’s three lines of effort to restore military readiness to build a more lethal force, strengthen alliances and build new partnerships, and drive business reforms for innovation and modernization.
“To accomplish our mission and achieve these efforts, we developed three goals and seven strategic objectives. The three goals are operate and defend; adopt, buy, and create solutions; and enable people and reform the agency. The seven strategic objectives are modernize the infrastructure, enhance operations, optimize for the enterprise, strengthen cybersecurity, drive innovation, enable people, and reform the agency,” wrote U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Nancy A. Norton, DISA director/commander, in the introduction to the plan.
The strategic goals and objectives are a framework to provide, operate, and assure C2 and information-sharing capabilities in direct support of joint warfighters, national-level leaders, and other mission and coalition partners across the spectrum of military operations.
DISA is the department’s premier IT provider and is committed to being the trusted provider to connect and protect the warfighter in cyberspace, while JFHQ-DoDIN is laser-focused on maintaining command and control (C2) of defensive cyber operations, I am honored to lead two organizations with distinct but complementary missions, Norton wrote.
The Strategic Plan is an overarching framework that informs planning priorities, resource allocation, and assessment criteria. The alignment and synchronization of priorities, resources, and assessments ensure we achieve the highest levels of performance and productivity on an enduring basis.
The Strategic Plan framework holistically supports the joint forces’ ability to win against any adversary, the agility to adapt to any challenge, the endurance to sustain any campaign, the resilience to recover readiness quickly, and the flexibility to address multiple challenges under different conditions.
DISA and JFHQ-DoDIN will review and update the strategic plan at the beginning of each fiscal year to ensure the services and capabilities provided contribute to a more lethal, resilient, and innovative joint force.
