The Joint Regional Security Stacks program has a few issues, according to a new report released by the Department of Defense’s Office of the Inspector General. The program while successful in some places, has complications in others. Maurice Foster, program director for the Audit Cyberspace Operations Directorate at DOD OIG, said that there are a few problems relating to the program’s training and implementation.
“DoD’s implementation of JRSS did reduce the number of paths an adversary could [use to] gain access to the DoD information network. However, JRSS didn’t achieve other joint information environment outcomes as expected. DoD officials did not ensure the JRSS tools met user’s needs and DoD officials did not ensure JRSS operators were trained properly prior to deployment,” Foster said.
