IT Resources. An IT Resource refers to, but are not limited to, computers, peripherals (printers, monitors, etc.), tablets, portable information technology devices (USB keys), access to internet/network, and mobile wireless devices.

4. Policy

Context

4.1 IT Resources are available to users to support their tasks, at all levels of the CJCR. IT Resources are essential in the fast-paced, dynamic DND/CAF work environment. Therefore, IT Resource allocation remains flexible and will adapt to the needs of the CCO based on various factors.

4.2 CJCR aims to provide IT Resources with the intent to support Cadet Activities, through:

  1. management of information;
  2. administration (command and control, operations, resources management, and planning);
  3. training; and
  4. collaboration and communication.

Policy

4.3 CJCR will allocate IT Resources based on a number of factors including availability, financial resources, storage space, required support, and lifecycle management.

4.4 The allocation of software licences is further detailed within CJCR Gp Order 6002-5, Software and License Management.

4.5 Control of IT Resources is further detailed within CJCR Gp Order 6002-7, Information Technology Asset Management, Lifecycling, and Accountability.

4.6 Access and usage controls for IT Resources is further detailed within CJCR Gp Order 6003-3, Acceptable Use of Corporate Networks, Computers and Other Corporate Information Technology Systems and CJCR Gp Order 6003-5, Acceptable Use of Corporate Information Technology Assets, Systems, and Networks by Cadets.

Connectivity and Network Types

4.7 Connectivity and access to Internet/Network:

  1. DWAN is the business network for DND/CAF and supports the processing of designated information up to Protected B. DWAN is solely accessible to DND/CAF personnel with a valid RS;
  2. CCO Net is the primary network of the CJCR. It supports the processing of designated information up to Protected A and is accessible to all DND/CAF employees/members with a valid RS. The CCO Net can be accessed from a CCO Net computer, a personal computer or a computer connected to the DWAN for Sharepoint only, therefore access does not require a CCO Net computer. Where appropriate, the CCO Net is made accessible to cadets.
  3. Public Internet access may be provided by DND/CAF for use by DND/CAF personnel, staff cadets, and course cadets, in order to allow for family communication, access to email, personal banking, and distance learning opportunities.
