Having read the thread on the Principles of Logistics last week it got me thinking about the Principles of CIS. Something a Senior Officer had asked me about in the past and no one seemed to know the answer. I guess the first question is does anyone know if there is such a thing as the âPrinciples of CISâ and if so where is it? I have looked through JSP 777 and there is loads of good stuff in there but nothing specifically âPrinciplesâ titled as such. I have also had a Google and didnât come up with anything definitive but I have come up with a list of things that I think could be considered as âThe Principles of CISâ: Planning â Identify Requirements and Develop Concepts Preparation â Personnel Training and Equipment (PACEX) Project â Deployment and Implementation Operate â Test & Commission, Systems and Applications, Resilience Monitor â Engineering, Configuration Management and Control Information â Manage and Exploit Sustain and Maintain â Logistics (Inc Power, Cabling, Environmental Conditioning) Protect â Physical and Information Finally âInteroperabilityâ across all Principles Soâ¦ What do you, the great and good, think. What else would you include or miss out?
