Navy Adm. Mike Rogers, commander of U.S. Cyber Command (Cybercom) and director of the National Security Agency (NSA), laid out Cybercom’s strategic priorities for 2016 while at the Atlantic Council on January 21. “As we start 2016… I remind people that defense remains our No. 1 priority,” said Rogers.
In his remarks, Rogers stressed the importance of cybersecurity in all sectors, saying that cybersecurity is “not unique to the Department of Defense. I see the same challenge every day in the corporate sector and in the rest of the government.” Rogers also discussed “cyber hygiene” and the role of partnerships in cybersecurity. According to Rogers “there is no single entity that has all the answers… This is a challenge that will require us to work together in collaborative and innovative ways.”
Cybercom’s priorities for 2016 also include continued protection of Department of Defense networks and systems, applying Cyber Mission Force capabilities more broadly, and expanding international partnerships.
