VALUE TO OUR MISSION PARTNERS
JIMS is mandated by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Memorandum 6510.01B, The Incident Handling Program, to be used by USCYBERCOM to monitor and Tier 2 CNDSPs to enter reportable Department of Defense (DoD) information assurance computer network defense (IA/CND) incidents.
Through JIMS, mission partners have the ability to gain situational awareness regarding reportable cyber incidents across the DoD.
JIMS is the only system mandated for use, in accordance with CJCSM 6510.01B by USCYBERCOM to monitor/search cyber incidents and for Tier 2 CNDSPs to enter reportable DoD cyber incidents.
JIMS is a robust, scalable incident management system that leverages best-of-breed open source commercial off the shelf and computer network defense CND data standards. It provides the incident management community with:
- Enhanced control, consolidation, and coordination of analysis activities
- Improved collaboration
- Better data fidelity
- Improved automation and data access
