US Army Halfway Through Four-Month Cybersecurity Study

The U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence is halfway through a four-month study to test its cyber solutions and review associated funding.

David May, a senior intelligence adviser at the Cyber Center, said during the TechNet Augusta conference that the study is looking at the Army’s cyber forces and the associated funding that falls under the U.S. Cyber Command. The study would give the Army a sense of what the service will be responsible for and how much it would cost to sustain, May shared.

The study will also look at what joint- and strategic-level cyber capabilities the Army can use for battlefield tactical forces. The study was launched ahead of CYBERCOM’s forthcoming budget authority enhancement, which will give it control over cyber forces and capabilities, DefenseScoop reported.

The study comes amid the Army’s efforts to enhance cybersecurity capabilities.

In mid-August, the service consolidated cybersecurity and network service delivery to the Army Cyber Command to enhance end-to-end visibility. In late July, the Army established the Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors to meet the service’s cyber warfare needs.
