Expanding tech advantages, 'cyber resiliency'

By The Washington Times

"The Army Cyber Command, the Army Cyber Institute at West Point and the Army Cyber Center of Excellence have begun the work of developing a ready cyber force dedicated to offensive and defensive cyber operations. The Army — alongside its sister services — has devoted significant resources, starting with people. The skills required for those who establish, maintain and defend our networks are more than one person could possibly provide. In just a few short years, the Army has launched a dedicated career field for cyber soldiers, trained hundreds of these soldiers and civilians alike to high standards in cyber operations, built 41 cyber mission force teams that are now operating and defending our nation in cyberspace, and integrated cyber operations into our traditional ground combat strategy."
