CACI Issues Cyber Report

CACI (NYSE: CACI) teamed with the U. S. Naval Institute (USNI) to release a new report called Cyber Threats to National Security: Countering Challenges to the Global Supply Chain.

The report publishes recommendations from the most recent symposium in the new Asymmetric Threats series on cybersecurity.

Held on March 2, 2010 at Ft. Myer, Virginia, the Cyber Threats symposium featured keynote speakers that included former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, former Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon R. England, and former Virginia Governor James S. Gilmore, III. Participants included thought leaders and key decision-makers from across government and industry.

The report noted the rise of cybersecurity as the issue has gained the national spotlight.  Cyber attacks have proven to be a tough foe for the government, as malicious acts can be perpetrated anonymously and for little cost.

According to CACI: “U.S. supply chains have historically been protected from threat because they were generally internal to North America, the report adds. This is no longer true in the cyber age. The vast majority of U.S. supply chains rely on information technologies that can be compromised at any time. Global partners and worldwide connectivity increase the risk. The responsibility to protect U.S. cyber assets must be shared among the government, the private sector, and every private citizen.”

“As U.S. troops engage in armed conflict on the ground, adversaries of all kinds are also moving to the cyber battlefield,” CEO Paul Cofoni said. “At CACI, while we continue our support for services and solutions that enable and protect the warfighter, we are also committed to developing the thought leadership and cyber capabilities our nation needs to counter cyber threats from any party that would do us harm.“

“The CACI-USNI report, Cyber Threats to National Security: Countering Challenges to the Global Supply Chain, captures the thinking of today's leaders and experts in national security,” said CACI chairman Dr. Jack London. “It recommends strongly that the U.S. aggressively pursue supply chain security as part of a comprehensive cybersecurity policy. The participants from the first Cyber Threats symposium, and from all the Asymmetric Threat symposia, are committed to promoting a national dialogue that will help our government respond to and preempt cyber attacks, and deal with all asymmetric threats.“
