Defense Department Launches Cyber Strategy Website

WASHINGTON, July 25, 2011 — The Defense Depart­ment has launched a new web­site to high­light its first uni­fied strat­e­gy for cyber­space, DOD offi­cials said in a state­ment today.

Deputy Defense Sec­re­tary William J. Lynn III announced the department’s Strat­e­gy for Oper­at­ing in Cyber­space on July 14 at Nation­al Defense Uni­ver­si­ty at Fort Les­ley J. McNair in Washington. 

We do not know the exact way in which cyber will fig­ure in the exe­cu­tion of [DOD’s] mis­sion, or the pre­cise sce­nar­ios that will arise,” Lynn told an audi­ence of mil­i­tary and civil­ian offi­cials, edu­ca­tors and reporters. “But the cen­tral­i­ty of infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy to our mil­i­tary oper­a­tions and our soci­ety vir­tu­al­ly guar­an­tees that future adver­saries will tar­get our depen­dence on it.” 

The new web­site, online at http://www.defense.gov/cyber, is a tool that will help to explain and con­sol­i­date the Pentagon’s cyber­se­cu­ri­ty accom­plish­ments and the new way for­ward for mil­i­tary, intel­li­gence and busi­ness oper­a­tions in cyber­space, offi­cials said. 

The new site will help users explore the five pil­lars of DOD’s cyber strat­e­gy: treat­ing cyber­space as an oper­a­tional domain, using new defense oper­at­ing con­cepts, part­ner­ing with the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, build­ing inter­na­tion­al part­ner­ships and lever­ag­ing tal­ent and innovation. 

The web­site includes links to cyber­se­cu­ri­ty jobs in gov­ern­ment, expert biogra­phies, news items, news releas­es and cyber­se­cu­ri­ty videos.
