 DoD Cloud Way Forward

 

In light of current fiscal realities, the DoD CIO is examining the use of commercial cloud computing as a cost savings measure for the Department of Defense. To that end, a 45 day study was commissioned to examine the balance between risks to the Department across the wide spectrum of computing needs and the costs of traditional security measures. The result of that study, "The DoD Cloud Way Forward," is available for download here.

 DoD CIO Cloud Industry Day

 

On January 29, 2015, the DoD CIO hosted the DoD CIO Cloud Industry Day at the Department of Commerce Auditorium.  The event,  a first in a series of Cloud Industry Days that the DoD CIO plans to host, was intended to foster continuous, open, constructive dialogue that can positively shape how the Department approaches the business of IT and cybersecurity.  The day included plenary and panel sessions examining the cradle-to-grave process for cloud service providers and users/customers, as well as new constructs to identify the appropriate security for the use of commercial cloud computing.  More information can be found in the videos below:
