DISA Unveils Five-Year Strategy to Secure, Modernize DOD’s Information Network

The Defense Information Systems Agency has rolled out its DISA Next Strategy, a comprehensive plan outlining its approach to securing and modernizing the Department of Defense’s information network over the next five years.

In line with the Pentagon’s global operational goals, the DISA Next Strategy comprises four strategic imperatives, six operational imperatives and eight goals aimed at strengthening the DOD’s information security posture and supporting the warfighter and mission partners, DISA said.

One of the strategy’s key initiatives is to streamline the DODIN by implementing a common IT environment across the department. Additionally, DISA will focus on developing a robust and secure cloud platform specifically designed for DOD needs.

To further enhance the network’s defenses, the strategy also emphasizes the integration of advanced identity and access management tools, along with zero trust capabilities, within a centralized IT and cloud platform.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Robert J. Skinner, DISA’s director, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker and a 2024 Wash100 awardee, underscored the agency’s commitment to delivering high-caliber IT services to the DOD and highlighted DISA’s ongoing transformation to address future cyber challenges and empower the warfighter effectively.
