cyber-hack-network-computerRussell Fenton, a training and doctrine command capability manager at the U.S. Army‘s the defensive cyberspace operations branch, has said cyber operators should maneuver remotely or on site to provide quick security response as needed, C4ISR & Networks reported Wednesday.

He told the TechNet Augusta conference the Army seeks to test a forensics malware tool on the defensive cyber operations maneuver baseline at the branch’s Network Integration Evaluation 17.2, Mark Pomerleau reports.

Fenton said 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 believes legal issues are a significant factor in the adoption of remote capability.

“From 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.”
