Maj. Gen. Dennis Crall, deputy principal cyber adviser and senior military adviser for cyber policy at the Department of Defense, has emphasizedÂ lethality, partnerships and reform as the key tenets of DoD’s cybersecurity strategy in a panel discussion held Thursday.
He notedÂ that commanders need to use special authorities and maintainÂ communications at a minimal level to support defensive and offensive cyber missions, according to an articleÂ published FridayÂ on the Pentagon’s website.
“Congress and the administration loaded us up with authorities we never before had, so we need to use them,” Crall told his audience at theÂ 10th Billington Cybersecurity Summit.
He added the U.S. military should properly manage scarce resources consistently and strengthen relationsÂ withÂ coalition forces viaÂ training events.
“We still struggle with information sharing in a timely manner, so we need better cross-domain solutions, and that’s on the radar to solve this year,” he said.
