On June 22, Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security Thomas Atkin told members of the House Armed Services Committee that the Department of Defense (DoD) has made significant progress in implementing is cyber strategy.
In his address, Atkin spoke of our increasingly interconnected world and our increasing vulnerability to cyberattacks. According to Atkin, while the DoD’s cyber capabilities are remarkable, they are not enough to protect the nation. Atkin insists that safeguarding the homeland requires “a culture of cybersecurity” and “a whole-of-government, and whole-of-nation approach.”
Atkins went on to speak of the DoD’s work with federal agencies and other partners to protect DoD networks and defend the U.S. against cyberattacks.
