The Cyber Operational Readiness Assessment helps strengthen the posture and resiliency of the Defense Department Information Network by supporting its Areas of Operation commanders and directors in their efforts to harden their information systems, reduce the attack surface of their cyber terrain, and enhance a more proactive defense.

Following a successful nine-month pilot, Joint Force Headquarters — Department of Defense Information Network (JFHQ-DODIN) is officially launching its Cyber Operational Readiness Assessment program.

Over the past four years, JFHQ-DODIN has made significant changes to the Defense Department Command Cyber Readiness Inspection program, transforming mindsets from an inspection compliance to an operational readiness underpinning mission assurance. To enunciate this significant shift, the program has been renamed to the Cyber Operational Readiness Assessment.
