“We and our industry partners have been investing and innovating cyber security solutions for more than a decade in anticipation of today’s defense and security needs,” Reardon added.

DoD intends for the strategy to bolster the agency’s cyber posture.

“Northrop Grumman applauds the DOD’s comprehensive strategy to safeguard our nation’s cyber future,” said Kathy Warden, Northrop Grumman’s corporate VP and president of information systems.

Warden added that the strategy’s emphasis on innovation and partnerships could help to strengthen the “nation’s defensive and deterrent posture.”
