DoD Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace

Today, the US Department of Defense released a highly-anticipated document, entitled, “Department of Defense Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace.”

I think this comment from a Pentagon official goes right to the heart of the issue:

“The department and the nation have vulnerabilities in cyberspace. Our reliance on cyberspace stands in stark contrast to the inadequacy of our cybersecurity.”

High reliance on cyberspace + low confidence in our ability to cope with bad guys = a dangerous combination.

I haven’t read the paper yet, but will comment more when I do.  The topic is both scary and intellectually stimulating to me. Perhaps I should enlist and ask to be assigned to the Cyber Command.

Oh, by the way, is it only coincidence that Iran recently launched their own Cyber Command?  I think not.
