Overview: Created in November 2018 from the former National Protection and Programs Directorate, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is the Nation’s risk advisor, working with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborating to build more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future. The threats our Nation faces—digital and physical, manmade, technological, and natural—are more complex, and the threat actors more diverse, than at any point in our history. CISA is at the heart of mobilizing a collective defense as it leads the effort to understand and manage risk to critical infrastructure. CISA’s partners in this mission span the public, private, and nongovernmental sectors. The cybersecurity, infrastructure security, and emergency communications capabilities and services CISA provides are driven by a comprehensive understanding of the risk environment and the corresponding needs identified by its stakeholders. CISA seeks to help its customers better manage risk and increase resilience using all available resources, whether inherent to their organizations, provided by the federal government, or licensed by commercial vendors.
Within CISA, the Integrated Operations Division (IOD) encompasses a broad range of capabilities to provide stakeholders with an integrated, “whole of CISA” response to their most critical needs. Among these capabilities is an operational planning function that is responsible for developing and maintaining cross-discipline operations plans that clearly reflect CISA strategy and leadership priorities and incorporate the unique competencies, roles, and responsibilities of each of its divisions. The IOD Operational Planning Team coordinates across CISA to foster a collaborative planning environment that enables the effective delivery of integrated CISA programs, services, and support to the critical infrastructure community. The team is responsible for developing and maintaining the contingency and crisis action plans, concepts of operations, standard operating procedures (SOPs), operating instructions, and other operational planning products used to guide CISA operations during Steady State, in support of special events, and in response to all-hazards threats and incidents. Client provides the IOD Operational Planning Team with technical writing support, planning expertise, and graphic design services.
