Appropriately place cyber

How to build a cyber which supports your armed service? Leadership, ideas, knowing where to put it, and understanding your service processes enough to execute the ideas. We can't get there from here without major changes. Interesting quote from one who was once involved in building Navy cyber... ...without having the final word.

My favorite line:

"He also praised the Army’s leadership. Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, USA, commander, Army Cyber Command, for example, is “exactly right” when he says the focus should be on broader information operations rather than simply cyber..."

Uh, yup. Most 100% definitely. But no one in the Navy officially "does" IO, so it falls to those who may have had a tour doing it at some point (perhaps in a joint command where you got to see how the Army/Marines do it) to try to drag the service along. I'd like to see that change.

Having worked with/for Bill in the past, I especially appreciate these comments. It's not a competition, but it is important to recognize that we started strong when building both a workforce to execute and an infrastructure on which to conduct cyberspace ops...then we stopped. Same thing on the culture of innovation. We created the CRIC and the NIAC then we killed each and then stopped altogether. Army is forging the future in cyberspace and Air Force is doing the same on the innovation front. There was a time when we were doing both. Let's at least keep pace. Hope the next generation doesn't stop short.
