The U.S. military does not have the trained personnel or the legal authorities it needs to respond to a computer-based attack on America or its allies, and a crisis would quickly strain the force, the Pentagon's cyber commander said Wednesday.
Gen. Keith Alexander, commander of the military's new Cyber Command and the director of the NSA, said DoD can help protect private networks from cyber attack - especially critical infrastructure - without infringing on civil liberties. He said civilian agencies and private network operators could leverage NSA's capabilities without having the spy agency be in charge of security.

DoD will hire 1,000 cybersecurity workers a year across all the services over the next few years to build their cyber force.
Administration's working group also is looking at policies and regulations that need to be updated. DoD calls on Congressional support when the White House submits its package of legislative changes. Meanwhile, DHS has released a draft of the National Cyber Incident Response Plan.
The Defense Department and its services plan to hire a total of 1,000 cyber professionals each year over the next three years, Gen. Keith Alexander tells a House committee. Alexander said getting the right people in place to move the DoD Cyber Command into an operational stage is among his highest priorities. DoD and the services must look at how best to retain these professionals once they work for the military.
The Defense Department's cyber command will become fully operational on October 1. Federal News Radio's Jason Miller joined DorobekINSIDER with details about how General Alexander believes DoD can overcome the lack of qualified cyber employees.
