The Pentagon's new approach to cybersecurity is pushing changes all over the Defense Department.

One change is in the Army War College's Information Operations handbook. Dennis Murphy, a professor of Information Operations and Information in Warfare at the Army War College Center for Strategic Leadership, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the new cyber curriculum.

"This is an evolving concept," Murphy said, in a ever-changing information environment.

Murphy discussed the new component added to the "Information Operations Primer", how the new pieces will be taught in the classroom and how service members are responding to it, so far.
