Capt. Andrew Tucci, Chief, Office of Port and Facility Compliance, U.S. Coast Guard

The Coast Guard unveiled a new cybersecurity strategy earlier this month. It doesn't just focus on protecting Coast Guard networks and systems. It also includes the country's 3,600 ports. That's because so many ports are nearly fully automated, and therefore vulnerable to cyber attacks. Capt. Andrew Tucci is the chief of the Coast Guard's Office of Port and Facility Compliance. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he said cyber attacks comprise the fastest growing risk, even at the ports.

Adm. Paul Zukunft, Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard

When we last checked in with Coast Guard Commandant, Adm. Paul Zukunft, the service was operating under a continuing resolution. Zukunft told us that funding was not keeping pace with the Coast Guard's need for better infrastructure, and that meant the Coast Guard wasn't keeping pace in some of its most important missions like stopping drug-runners because of its funding problems. Now, at least one thing is different: The service has a full budget for the remainder of the year. Zukunft joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive from the Sea Air Space 2015 conference at National Harbor with more on how things are operating now.

On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said those four ideas will not only cause debate among strategy purists in the defense community, but they also cement the legacy of Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathon Greeenert.

Matt Stuck, First Coast Guard District Aids to Navigation Manager

Hundreds of New Englanders are sounding off about a Coast Guard plan to update its coastal foghorns. It wants to replace 1970s technology, which the Coast Guard says has gotten more expensive than replacement. They'll be activated via radio signals by users of marine radios. That will mean fewer soundings. Matt Stuck, the First Coast Guard District Aids-to-Navigation Manager, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the modernization efforts.
