U.S. Cyber Command acquisition experiment begins broader cyber self-assessment

The federal government’s cybersecurity policy has reached a crossroads, and the upcoming presidential transition is an opportunity to take a long, hard look in the mirror, and decide how to move forward.

That’s according to Adm. Mike Rogers, who runs both the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command. And the self-assessment he wants begins with is how the government purchases capabilities.

“There’s a test within the defense language from last year’s Defense Authorization Act which grants U.S. Cyber Command, on a test basis, for the first time, both acquisition authority and a very small amount of money,” he said during his keynote speech at the Maryland Cyber Conference 2016 on Oct. 20.
