The leader of the Army's new Cyber Center of Excellence says his job is not merely to build the cyber workforce, but to integrate that up-and-coming capability with the Army's existing signals and intelligence disciplines.
The Army has activated a new brigade, a cyber brigade, its first ever. The brigade is part of the Army's Cyber Command. The brigade will be divided into teams consisting of both soldiers and civilians. Their primary mission will be to conduct defensive cyberspace operations. Army Col. Donald Bray is commander of the Cyber Protection Brigade in Fort Gordon, Georgia. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the brigade's structure and mission.
Ronald Pontius, the deputy to the commander of Army Cyber Command, said over the next few years the Army will give cyber workers their own career field, preliminarily known as Career Field 17.
The Defense Information Systems Agency will begin to shake up its organizational chart in significant ways beginning on Oct. 1. But officials, so far, are reluctant to discuss the details.
The first change of command at U.S. Cyber Command is complete. General Keith Alexander made way for Admiral Mike Rogers recently. But new revelations from Edward Snowden are a reminder that the first four years of the combination of CYBERCOM and the National Security Agency aren't without controversy. William Lynn was Deputy Secretary of Defense when the Defense Department stood up Cyber Command. He wrote about the strategy behind it in Foreign Policy at the time. He is now Chief Executive Officer of Finmeccanica North America and DRS Technologies. He explained on In Depth with Francis Rose the chain of events that caused DoD leadership to stand up Cyber Command.
Under a construct that's still under discussion, the Defense Information Systems Agency would take charge of some portion of DoD's cyber defenses under a new Joint Force Headquarters.
Gen. Keith Alexander, who will soon retire as the first commander of U.S. Cyber Command, said his organization has matured to the point that it should join the club of unified commands that report directly to the President.
A higher slot on the military's organizational chart for U.S. Cyber Command.

An interagency review group determined having one leader for both organizations makes the most sense to get the mission done.
Obama administration considers splitting command of National Security Agency and cybersecurity
The Army still doesn't know whether its new and growing force of soldiers dedicated to cyber missions is large enough for the task. But it's certain it doesn't have the legal authorities it needs to attract and retain the talent it wants.
Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Harris, the senior enlisted advisor at Army Cyber Command, said the Army is doing a good job at finding the right soldiers with the necessary skill sets to become cyber warriors.
Gen. Keith Alexander, head of the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency, said the greatest impact of the ongoing government shutdown on cybersecurity is on the morale of the cyber workforce.
Department will move away from DoD-specific approaches to cybersecurity, lean more toward informing and relying on governmentwide efforts.
NSA director says surveillance programs disrupted dozens of terrorist attacks
NIST, charged with developing the nation's first-ever cybersecurity baseline for critical infrastructure, says its job is to provide technical assistance to companies, but industry itself must lead the way. Gen. Keith Alexander said NSA will review the use of contractors.
On this week's Capital Impact show, Bloomberg Government analysts discuss Fannie and Freddie underwriting practices, how much colleges and universities spend on lobbying, and how BRAC is changing the area around Fort Meade.

U.S. Cyber Command is putting together dozens of groups to defend the military's network, to work with combatant commanders on offensive tactics and to respond to attacks against the nation. Gen. Keith Alexander, however, said budget cuts will delay DoD's ability to recruit and train team members.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is concerned new regulations may make whistleblowers even more reluctant to report tax fraud to the IRS. OMB Controller Danny Werfel says $85 billion in cuts under sequestration would hurt every state. Maj. Gen. Brett Williams says the U.S. Cyber Command is trying to figure how to normalize operations alongside air, land and sea capabilities. Lynn Singleton, director of environmental services at Lockheed Martin, talks about helping agencies move their email to the cloud. Dr. Milton Corn explains why The National Library of Medicine is monitoring social media.
