About the Presentation:

In response to persistent threats and attacks to weapon systems, information systems, and the
supply chain, DoD has expanded emphasis on program protection planning. Program
Protection is the integrating process for managing security risks to DoD
warfighting capability from foreign intelligence collection; from hardware,
software, and cyber vulnerability or supply chain exploitation; and from
battlefield loss throughout the system life cycle.

Development and sustainment of a program protection strategy is a team effort
that requires close and continuing engagement between program managers,
engineers, and program security personnel. It is critical to ensure planning
begins at program inception as early design decisions will impact the long-term
protection strategy, and late security decisions will impact program cost and

Such integration of program management, engineering and security is
particularly important to DARPA due to the compressed timelines of typical
DARPA programs and the complications of transitioning from an S&T
environment at DARPA to a program of record in a military service or DoD
component. This discussion will focus on policies and practices DARPA has
implemented due to its unique mission and environment, but which have
long-lasting and far-reaching implications for our government transition
partners and technical performers.

The second part of the discussion will introduce policy initiatives DARPA has
pioneered with Defense Industry partners in the Special Access Program (SAP)
community. These initiatives serve as pilots for a larger DoD effort to improve
Defense Industry’s ability to enable Better Buying Power and increase their
contribution to the 3rd Offset Strategy through more efficient utilization and
integration of government and contractor knowledge, infrastructure, and
intelligence information.
