Jim Keffer, director of cyber at Lockheed Martin, told Federal News Radio in an interview posted Tuesday how the Defense Department“™s cyber strategy is synched up with and embedded into the White House“™s National Cyber Strategy.

“The national strategy talks more about domestic issues and the DoD strategy is more about the military part, but the nesting of the strategies together, I think that“™s powerful,“ Keffer said on the station“™s Cybersecurity Month segment.

“From that we can build plans, campaigns across the federal government and within DoD in this new cyber arena.“

He noted how the deterrence aspect of the strategies could help the U.S. government counter cyber threats and cited the need to address the shortage in cyber talent.

“I“™d like to see us as a nation get down into increasing the base “¦ getting children from kindergarten through 12th grade interested in not only cybersecurity, but science, technology, engineering, math and logistics,“ added Keffer, who also serves as vice chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance“™s cyber council.
