Security Risk Mitigation in a Multi‐Domain Audio Visual Environment
Much attention of late has been given to insider threats and to shoring up network security in the Intelligence Community (IC), yet one of the great vulnerabilities left for America’s enemies to exploit is access to classified information via Audio Visual (AV) channels. With current budget cuts and travel restrictions, along with a push to share more information among various agencies, the demand to provide video conferencing access to multiple domains in a single location is rapidly increasing. While video access to both of the primary networks (NIPR, SIPR) has been common for some time, there has been a recent increase in demand to include separate and/or dedicated SCI networks (e.g. JWICS) within the Intelligence Community (IC) and to provide access to traditionally isolated networks dedicated to specific agencies (e.g. FBI).
Most Information Systems Security Managers (ISSM) are familiar with the security risks that exist in deploying and configuring workstations, routers and servers in a secure environment. Security personnel have been trained to properly address and mitigate those risks and have numerous tools to assist them in managing them.
