Operating in the Digital Domain: Organizing the Military Departments for Cyber Operations, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Unconventional Threats and Capabilities of the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundred Eleventh Congress, Second Session, September 23, 2010   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the opening statement of Loretta Sanchez: "The recent announcement that the Department of Defense (DOD) suffered a major compromise of classified military computer networks has renewed discussions about what more DOD and the government should do to operate in the digital domain. The establishment of U.S. Cyber Command and the announcement of a new cybersecurity strategy by Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn are important milestones, but more needs to be done. [...] The purpose of this hearing is for the members of this subcommittee to learn what progress the services are making and organizing to carry out the full range of cyber operations, including computer network defense, offense, and exploitation functions. We also hope that the witnesses before us will be able to flesh out the doctrinal training and recruiting needs that will enable service concepts." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeff Miller, Loretta Sanchez, Bernard J. McCullough III, George J. Flynn, Rhett Hernandez, and Richard E. Webber.
