Officials to Release DOD Cyber Strategy

WASHINGTON, July 11, 2011 — Offi­cials expect to release the Defense Department’s first cyber strat­e­gy July 14, a Pen­ta­gon spokesman said today.
Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan told reporters that because the release will be an unclas­si­fied ver­sion of the strat­e­gy, it will not be great­ly detailed.

“The unclas­si­fied ver­sion, you will find, fol­lows much of what was in the administration’s cyber strat­e­gy,” he said. White House offi­cials announced the nation’s first inter­na­tion­al strat­e­gy for cyber­space in May. 

The strat­e­gy address­es the eco­nom­ic, secu­ri­ty, law enforce­ment, mil­i­tary, gov­er­nance, inter­na­tion­al devel­op­ment and inter­net free­dom aspects of the cyber realm. 

Lapan empha­sized the department’s cyber strat­e­gy does not focus on acts of war. 

“This is about an over­all cyber strat­e­gy, and how we defend our­selves against cyber threats,” he said. 

Speak­ing in Paris last month, Deputy Defense Sec­re­tary William J. Lynn III said DOD was devel­op­ing “a com­pre­hen­sive cyber strat­e­gy that will guide how each mil­i­tary ser­vice trains, equips, and com­mands its forces for the cyber mission.”
