A white paper by Marcus Norman, NetCentrics Corporation, first published June 2016
Training A&A analysts to think and act like CND professionals.
This white paper examines the role of the Authorization and Accreditation analyts performing cybersecurity functions. While cybersecurity threats have evolved, many A&A analysts still review and approve systems by reviewing documentation, rather than considering a holistic approach embraced by Computer Network Defense (CND) professionals. We stipulate in this paper that training A&A analysts to think and act like CND professionals will increase the effectiveness and security of IT systems.
