Updated US Cyber Command strategic priorities unveiled

U.S. Cyber Command and National Security Agency Head Gen. Paul Nakasone has unveiled three new strategic priorities in an effort to bolster its posture while dealing with global challenges, reports DefenseScoop. Aside from prioritizing the force's readiness and resilience against cyberattacks, the Cyber Command also seeks to focus on enhancing its advantages in warfighting through the competition phase, as well as executing its authorities to establish and maintain its cyber advantage, said Nakasone at the Cyber Command's Industry Day. Updated challenges needing industry input have also been presented by the Cyber Command, including vulnerabilities and exploits. "With vulnerabilities and exploits, when we're thinking about it, a DOD Information Network that is as large as it is, how do I rapidly identify the vulnerabilities quickly and being able to patch them more expeditiously, particularly with the challenges of artificial intelligence in the hands of adversaries in the future? These are things that we're going to have to be able to do," added Nakasone.
