Cybersecurity Figure of Merit (CFOM) Cyber Readiness Assessment

Cybersecurity remains an uncertain domain where leadership struggles with strategies to objectively measure the monetary investment in cyber against expected operational outcomes and Fleet readiness. Traditionally, systems delivered to the Fleet were concerned with platform stability, not security. Cybersecurity has caused a revolution in military affairs and forced the SYSCOMS to address this clear and present danger in ways not previously imagined. Budgets and processes need to be calculated to support proactive cyber protection. This includes systems, communications between systems, the transmitted data, software in the systems and applications, and human interfaces and user actions.
