U.S. DoD Data Decrees

U.S. DoD Data Decrees

The Deputy Secretary of Defense signed out a memorandum outlining the Department of Defense's approach to creating a data advantage.

Last month, the Deputy Secretary of Defense issued a memorandum outlining some of the framework the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is to use to create a data advantage.  According to the memorandum, the DoD is to apply five data decrees:

  1. Maximize data sharing and rights for data use: all DoD data is an enterprise resource.
  2. Publish data assets in the DoD federated data catalog along with common interface specifications.
  3. Use automated data interfaces that are externally accessible and machine-readable; ensure interfaces use industry-standard, non-proprietary, preferably open-source, technologies, protocols, and payloads.
  4. Store data in a manner that is platform and environment-agnostic, uncoupled from hardware or software dependencies.
  5. Implement industry best practices for secure authentication, access management, encryption, monitoring, and protection of data at rest, in transit, and in use.
