Federal Information Assurance: The DoD IA Policy Chart

DoD IA Policy Chart
The Information Assurance Technology Analysis Center (IATAC) publishes a helpful chart that you may not know about unless you work with Federal accounts. The DoD IA Policy Chart does a great job illustrating the staggering number of regulations, standards, and guidance documents created by our government.

From the website: "The goal of the IA Policy Chart is to capture the tremendous breadth of applicable policies, some of which many IA practitioners may not even be aware, in a helpful organizational scheme. [...] At the bottom center of the chart is a legend that identifies the originator of each policy by a color-coding scheme. On the right hand side of the IA Policy Chart, there are boxes, which cover the legal authority for the policies, the federal/national level of IA policies, as well as operational and subordinate level documents that provide details on securing the GIG [Global Information Grid] and its assets. Links to these documents can be found in the Chart."

To the team of people to put this together: Awesome job. Thank you for the hard work.

Here is the list of resources used in the creation of the chart:
