On May 14, we held a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Mr. Eric Rosenbach, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Cyber Policy and Mr. Richard Hale, Deputy Chief Information Officer for Cybersecurity.
They discussed the Pentagon’s recent initiatives to improve Defense Industrial Base (DIB) network defenses and allow DIB companies and the Government to reduce damage to critical programs when defense information is compromised. The United States continues to face a significant risk that critical defense information residing on DIB networks and systems can be compromised by malicious cyber actors resulting in potential economic losses or damage to United States national security.
