Cybersecurity of weapon systems: Assuring they’re ready when needed


For warfighters, few considerations are more important than knowing that their weapon systems, positioning, communications, and networks are fully operational for any mission. All too often, though, systems haven’t been hardened against dynamic cyber threats and procurement contracts used to acquire the systems don’t address cybersecurity requirements in the first place.

It’s something that the Defense Department and industry understands that it needs to address in order for the DoD to execute on its new concepts of operation such as Joint All Domain Command and Control and multi-domain operations — both of which are network enabled, and by definition, vulnerable to cyberattack.

In this Breaking Defense eBrief on weapon systems cybersecurity, we discuss the progress being made in this area with: Young Bang, principal deputy assistant secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics & Technology; and Army Col. Mark Taylor, project manager, Defensive Cyber Operations at Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems.
