The Army is readying a new strategy for cyberspace that will span acquisition policy, command and control, and private sector outreach, Col. Carmine Cicalese, chief of cyberspace and information operations at Army headquarters, told FCW.
The strategy, which Cicalese said he expects the Army will publish by the end of November, reflects the service’s effort to grapple with a cyber domain that affects a number of Army disciplines, including signals intelligence and electronic warfare. The strategy will help the Army “be more proactive and be able to look forward across the enterprise where we’re going as an institution,” Cicalese said in an Oct. 13 interview.
The acquisition component of the strategy is designed to get offensive and defensive capabilities to the cyber protection teams being deployed by Army Cyber Command. “How do we put the policies in place so that we can be as fast as possible, until if and when the laws are changed?” Cicalese said.
