Katrina McFarland, the Army’s acting assistant secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology, has described cyber and electronic warfare as enterprise challenges and discussed ways to work through the attacks, C4ISRNET reported Thursday.

McFarland said via video teleconference at the Space and Missile Defense Symposium that work through cyber or EW attacks requires comprehension of systems and categorization of the critical parts, Mark Pomerleau reports.

“If you take a look at a system, there are many functions that a system performs military – some of them more critical than others,” she said.

“That needs to be understood because then, in terms of how do you build protection inside of that system, you create the environment that protects the highest degree those most critical missions while allowing some degradation of the non-critical missions,” McFarland added.
