Quotes

...Describing it as foundational, he added, "If you don't, you can't really do anything with the cyber intelligence you consume. You can't really consume, and you can't really act onon that cyber intelligence."
Gen. Bowman also lauded the Defense Enterprise Cyber Range Environment as absolutely critical. "We need to trust, share and train on that range environment,” he said. “Recently, we were able to simulate a combatant command headquarters with a joint operations center, a maritime operations center and an air operations center, and we had red teams in there hammering on us to test for vulnerabilities.” The exercise allowed the department to continue to develop tactics, techniques and procedures for future cyberwarriors, he indicated, stressing the importance of training and adapting the force."

It has to be provided to the right security standards, and it will have to be checked,” Gen. Bowman stated, while speaking at AFCEA TechNet Augusta 2014 ."
"We’re going to learn from the National Security Agency; we’re going to learn from the Defense Information Systems Agency,” Gen. Fogarty said."
