Terry Halvorsen, the Defense Department‘s chief information officer, has said that DoD will introduce measures to hold commanders and staff members accountable for incidents that result from their use of cyber networks, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

“We have not done enough to educate the command chain about what they should be expecting, what’s normal behavior and what they’re responsible for,” Halvorsen was quoted as saying by the radio station.

He noted DoD will also implement new programs to train and test the department’s military and civilian personnel on cyber hygiene, according to Federal News Radio.

Halvorsen added the department has modified its user authentication waiver process and required that username/password systems undergo an approval process at the agency’s CIO office and the U.S. Cyber Command.
