At the end of February, Navy Adm. Mike Rogers, the chief of U.S. Cyber Command, spoke about USCYBERCOM’s evolution in the next decade.
One of Adm. Rogers’ main focuses was the ability for U.S. soldiers to secure systems on the front lines. He seeks the implementation of both offensive and defensive tactical cyber. Adm. Rogers hopes to “engender enough confidence in decision makers and policy makers” to make this shift.
He also envisioned utilizing the Special Operations Command model so that USCYBERCOM becomes involved in the entire development process.
Other points focused on plans of action:
- Support military staff members’ continued enthusiasm in the cyber mission.
- Increase engagement with tech companies to gather product ideas from multiple industry perspectives.
