By CHIPS Magazine - September 20, 2019
The Department of the Navy computer/network incident instruction has been updated. The purpose of the instruction is to document policy for the handling of computer incidents and to ensure that policy is in alignment across the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense.

This policy focuses on the internal components of defensive cyberspace operations with the goal of protecting DON data, networks and systems. By delineating reporting requirements and offices for response and coordination, the instruction supports successful resolution by ensuring the synchronization of technical, operational and intelligence assessments of a computer incident.
