Todd Hicks, chief technology officer at Leonardo DRS, told C4ISRNET in an interview published Monday how industry helps the military address cyber challenges. He said the industry works with the Pentagon to identify the requirements and strengthen policies that are coming down to the acquisition offices.

“Tactically, with the products, we're leaning forward with industry-cutting-edge technologies, baking them into our offerings, regardless of the shortcomings with the government requirements. We're still applying the hardening measures to hardware and adding integrity measures,“ Hicks added.

He discussed the government's focus on risk management framework, cyber attacks on embedded systems and adversaries' efforts to plan and launch a low-level cyber attack.
