The Air Force is forming a new strategy for cyberspace but has not yet formed its definition of what constitutes cyberspace operations, Federal News Radio reports.

Lt. Gen. Michael Basla, the Air Force’s chief information officer, said the service is trying to spell out differences between what is need to build the network, operate it and maintain it.

The branch is also determining what is needed to operate on the network, he said.

Basla also said the branch will base its definition of as cyberspace operations as around what it will operate on the network, adding the branch is studying the readiness of its cyber forces to support Cyber Command.

The Air Force plans to increase its number of cyber graduates too and projects it will be able to meet cyber demands in the fourth quarter of 2014, he said.
