DoD plan to buy cybersecurity tools hits speedbump
Monday - 8/27/2012, 8:57am EDT
DoD was required to come up with a plan under section 993 of its 2011 authorization bill. But sources told Defense News, people inside the Pentagon are shying away with what they've come up with. That's because they think it's too bureaucratic and might end up slowing down the acquisition of new tools. The plan calls for the creation of two new bodies. The Cyber Investment Management Board would oversee cyber acquisition, and a Cyber Capabilities Team would look at technology and policy requirements.
DoD said it was still working on the final version.
