Michael Vickers, the Defense Department‘s undersecretary for intelligence, has said defense of military networks requires partnerships between the government and industry, DoD News reported Thursday.

Vickers told the Defense One Summit Wednesday the government and private sector must work together to protect military networks and bolster cybersecurity to safeguard the nation’s critical infrastructure, Amaani Lyle reports.

He also called for support for combatant commanders in the cyber warfare domain, according to the report.

“Cybersecurity is a job for everybody…They can use this to gain economic advantage and … erode our economic position over a long period of time without fighting a war, because national security ultimately derives from economic security and strength,” he said, according to the report.
