Pentagon to triple its security workforce by 2016

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

US is always worried about its security, no matter it’s about physical or cyber related. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Pentagon efforts to strengthen its U.S. Cyber Command in coming years. By 2016, the Fort Meade, Md.-based military command expects to triple its security staff to 6,000 people, he said Hagel revealed the recruitment efforts late last month during a speech at the National Security Agency’s (NSA) headquarters, according to a March PBS report. In the speech, Hagel also shared that the Pentagon’s hiring plans included military and civilian candidates. By this year’s end, Hagel expects the Pentagon’s cyber security workforce to stand at 1,800 individuals. The move comes as the government attempts to thwart cyber espionage threats from China and elsewhere, as well as other cyber-attacks that threaten national security or economic competitiveness. In one measure to specifically stave off critical infrastructure attacks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a cyber-security framework to help aid organizations and operators. NIST unveiled the voluntary framework in February, which was designed to complement organizations’ existing security management programs. The framework was intended to serve as a guidepost for a range of industries managing integral processes for the nation, from […]

Pentagon watchdog to investigate allegations of Afghan child abuse

The Pentagon’s Inspector General is looking into a spate of recent reports regarding U.S. military commanders’ mishandling of child sexual assault cases in Afghanistan since 2011.

According to a memorandum posted online Wednesday, the inspector general’s initial research into the issue is meant to establish certain criteria for “potential future work.”

The watchdog’s interest in the matter is just one more element in a longstanding problem that has plagued U.S. forces and their Afghan allies for years. The issue, however, was recently brought to light in September when The New York Times published a report that highlighted U.S. service members’ encounters with Afghan troops who were sexually assaulting young boys.

U.S. suspects Russia in hack of Pentagon computer network

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

U.S. military officials said Thursday that they suspect Russian hackers infiltrated an unclassified Pentagon e-mail system used by employees of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the latest in a series of state-sponsored attacks on sensitive U.S. government computer networks. The electronic intrusion was detected about July 25, officials said. The Pentagon immediately disabled the e-mail system, which is used by about 4,000 military and civilian personnel, in an attempt to contain the damage. The network remains offline, although officials said they hoped to restart it in the coming days. The Defense Department disclosed the attack shortly after it occurred, but only in recent days have investigators traced it to Russia. Officials said the complexity and advanced nature of the hack strongly suggested that a foreign government was responsible. “This attack was fairly sophisticated and has the indications . . . of having come from a state actor such as Russia,” said a U.S. official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss details of the investigation. The cyberattack on the Joint Staff, which coordinates operations among the branches of the armed forces, is similar to one last fall that successfully penetrated unclassified e-mail systems at the White House and the State […]

Home Depot Ranks Higher in Cyber Defense Than Pentagon Contractors

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

After revelations that a compromised contractor login abetted a grandiose breach of federal employees’ background investigations, now comes word that Defense Department suppliers score below hacked retailers when it comes to cyber defense. The new industry-developed cyber rankings–and the recent Office of Personnel Management hack–raise questions about the extent to which cybersecurity is a shared responsibility between government agencies and contractors. “You can write a contract requiring somebody to do something. The question is, how do you enforce it? And if it’s broken, what are the penalties? That’s what DOD is really struggling with,” said Jacob Olcott, vice president of business development at BitSight Technologies, which rates firms’ susceptibility to hacks. “If you are the only organization that’s building an F-35, there is only so much that the government can demand of you.” When measured in aggregate, network controls at breached J.P. Morgan Chase and Home Depot, combined with the rest of the retail and financial sectors, rated higher than the top companies supporting the U.S. military, according to BitSight. Those firms include Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and 22 other defense contractors. The defense industrial complex is one of the most regulated sectors in the United States. Similarly, background investigation […]
