Through using the link below you will be able to review all the information regarding the responsibilities within the DIACAP and indeed through the Department of Defense:

  • What are DIACAP?

DIACAP are an association responsible for designating the information systems to the different sections of the Department of Defense. They achieve this by creating system that includes the following components:

  • Networking
  • Outsourced Information Technology
  • An automated system of information
  • Implemented hardware and software

The Department of Defense is regarded as the highest level of government security with a variety of specialized forces, sectors and services ready to serve. It originally started out as the Department of War but was later revamped to become the Department of Defense.

  • The organization of US defense

The three main sectors within the Department of Defense are the US Navy, US Air Force and the US Army. All three of these sectors are also served by several other smaller sectors known as agencies. The agencies are essentially the sources of orders and information for the main three sectors of defense.

Although DIACAP play a very large part in the allocation of information systems, it appears that the responsibility of preparing the US Army lies with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Of course - all matters can be overruled by the highest member of the set-up; the President of the United States.
