DOD, USTRANSCOM to Take Lead in Improving Global Logistics Network’s Cyber Posture

The Department of Defense and the U.S. Transportation Command are collaborating to take the lead in protecting the global logistic network’s cybersecurity.

In the last week of June, the Joint Force Headquarters-DOD Information Network and USTRANSCOM held a global logistics summit to discuss how both organizations could support each other in improving the cybersecurity posture of the global logistics network.

According to Col. Jessica Haugland, chief of global logistics at JFHQ-DODIN and the event’s organizer, the two organizations’ cooperation will center on protecting the cybersecurity of data as logistics providers move goods across the world, DefenseScoop reported.

Speaking at AFCEA’s TechNet Cyber conference held in Baltimore, Maryland, on Wednesday, Brig. Gen. Heather Blackwell, deputy commander of JFHQ-DODIN, discussed how JFHQ-DODIN and USTRANSCOM will work to improve global logistics’ cyber posture, highlighting how her team will be supporting USTRANSCOM’s offensive and defensive capabilities.

USTRANSCOM has been ensuring the optimal state of its networks over the last few years. In 2022, Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, the command’s commander, disclosed before the Senate Armed Services Committee plans to integrate a zero trust security model on its classified networks to improve its cybersecurity posture and better block adversarial threats.
