U.S Defense Department is building a massive, innovative, electronic system that will leave behind the hackers, to overview the vulnerabilities of Military’s computer networks, its weapon system, Installation, equipment details etc, as told by the Deputy commander of U.S Cyber Command on Thursday.
Air Force Lieutenant General Kevin McLaughlin told Reuters officials should reach agreement on a framework within months, with a goal of turning the system into an automated “scorecard” in coming years.
In a report where Pentagon’s chief weapon tester, was reported to the critical issue last year this would be a security step towards its enhancement. Initially data entry would be done by hand, for the trial period, but they would be making it fully autonomous to help defense officials detect and respond to cyber attacks.
Mclaughlin told the conference that they have already setup 133 planned cyber response teams that encompasses of 6,200 people, that would be initiated by the end of 2016. “There’s probably not enough money in the world to fix all those things, but the question is what’s most important, where should we put our resources as we eat the elephant one bite at a time,” he said.
