AFA Statement on DoD’s Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace:
Arlington, VA – “The Pentagon recently released its very first strategy for operating in cyberspace. The plan includes five strategic initiatives: organizing and training professionals to take full advantage of cyberspace’s potential; employing defense operating concepts to protect DoD networks; partnering with other U.S. government departments and agencies, as well as the private sector; building relationships with international partners to strengthen collective cybersecurity; and leveraging the nation’s ingenuity through an exceptional cyber workforce and rapid technological innovation.
The Air Force Association welcomes this strategy and its implementation. The asymmetric impact in cyberspace, along with the tool and techniques developed by cyber criminals, can significantly affect U.S. defensive readiness, national security and the nation’s day-to-day functions.
We join the nation in its quest to advance the training and educating of American forces and civilians to better (and safely) operate in the cyber domain.”
The AFA is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization promoting public understanding of aerospace power and the pivotal role it plays in the security of the nation. AFA has over 200 chapters nationally and internationally representing 120,000 members.
