DoD Strategy to Recruit, Train, and Retain Cyber-Ready Force

  • Lieutenant Colonel Marlyce K. Roth

With the ever-growing cyber threat from state and non-state actors, U.S. national interests and those of U.S. allies are at a significant risk. Unlike the other domains, the cyber domain grows exponentially on a daily basis, so time is of the utmost importance for building and sustaining a cyber-ready force to protect against threats. The April 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy provides a solid foundation, for developing enterprise-wide programs and plans to build a cyber-ready force to meet the U.S. national military objectives that support the National Security Strategy.
