From the document: "The Department of Defense (DoD) is increasingly concerned that the loss of sensitive data to our adversaries is eroding the competitive advantage of the United States. This sensitive data includes business proprietary information on key programs of record and infrastructure, including government documents at the Federal and State levels that describe gaps in and limitations of our national assets. This loss of data compromises the effectiveness of our readiness for defense of the nation, and it minimizes the investments we have made to build advantages into our offensive and defensive capabilities—needed for protection in the event of an attack. The customary kinetic thin line, a basic level of survivability and resiliency to protect our most critical assets at the Federal level, may not be broad enough to include the full scope of issues that arise as adversaries seek to compromise our key defenses and national physical assets through breaches of our networks and other electronically initiated means."
