Vice Joint Chiefs: DoD cyber strategy 'too predictable'

Friday - 7/15/2011, 6:33pm EDT

Just 24 hours after the Defense Department unveiled its first ever cyber defense strategy, the policy is already taking some heat.

Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General James Cartwright blasted the policy, calling it way too predictable and purely defensive.

Cartwright says it does little more than patch up vulnerabilities after each attack.

And, Stars and Stripes reports, the cyber strategy doesn't address whether DoD or DHS could legally conduct their own offensive cyberattacks.
