Following the admission of the flash drive fiasco, Deputy Secretary of Defense William J. Lynn outlined the various ways the Pentagon is striving to stay immune to cyber villains in an article published in Foreign Affairs.

In “Defending a New Domain,”  Lynn describes DoD's emerging cybersecurity policy, comprised by five key points. The first, cyber has to be recognized as a warfare domain equal to land, sea and air followed by ensuring that any defensive posture reaches beyond good hygiene to include sophisticated and accurate operations that allow fast response.

The other three “pillars” of a robust cyber defense includes reaching beyond the DoD's dot-mil world into commercial networks, as governed by Homeland Security. The fourth aspect encompasses working with international allies to pursue cyber defenses. Also, the DoD must assist maintaining and leveraging U.S. technological advantages and improving the acquisitions process to keep up with the fast-paced IT realm.

Pentagon officials are formulating a cyber-strategy document to be released this fall. It will – among other things – sort out the statutory changes needed for cyber defense, along with the ability to provide “automated defenses.”
