Russell Fenton, aÂ training and doctrine command capability manager at the U.S. Army‘sÂ the defensive cyberspace operations branch, has saidÂ cyber operators shouldÂ maneuver remotely or on site to provide quick security response as needed, C4ISR & Networks reported Wednesday.
HeÂ told the TechNet Augusta conference the Army seeks to test a forensics malware tool on the defensive cyber operations maneuver baseline at the branch’sÂ Network Integration Evaluation 17.2, Mark Pomerleau reports.
Fenton saidÂ the forensics malware tool would apply enterprise-wide and that the goal is to create a regional cyber center to acquire the artifacts with the use of the technology, according to the publication.
The report said he believesÂ legal issues are a significant factor in the adoption of remote capability.
âFrom the legal standpoint, are we able to do that?” he said.
“Because, again, you want to make sure that the evidence is not tainted or that its integrity is jeopardized in a way that an analyst can go in and actually find out what the heck happened.”
