Program and Technology Protection
Program and Technology Protection

The three pillars of acquisition (cost, schedule, and performance) must stand on a solid foundation of security. However, there remains a perception that programs strap on program and technology protection (PTP) measures that prove to be inefficient and ineffective. Further, protection measures are not considered early or frequently enough within the acquisition life cycle. To begin overcoming these deficiencies, acquisition professionals need a more culturally ingrained security environment, as well as greater awareness of PTP throughout the acquisition process and at all levels. To that end, this learning path provides a general baseline of PTP for all who are directly or indirectly involved in the acquisition life cycle process.
