The Navy s top cyber commander said the service is undergoing a "cul- tural shift" toward viewing computer networks as the battle elds they are, but some of that education has yet to trickle down to the rank and le. In recent years, the Navy has moved away from its IT procurement approach of a decade ago, which did not recog- nize IT systems as potential weapons platforms, said Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, commander of the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and the Navy s 10th Fleet. "So we have to shift the way we pro- gram for, procure, support and main- tain and the way that our war ghting commanders [and] commanding of - cers at sea view this network," she said at the C4ISR and Networks Conference earlier this month. The Navy s top brass is attuned to this new paradigm, but "as you get lower down the food chain, it gets a lot more spotty," said Tighe, the rst woman to command a numbered naval eet. "There are pockets of understand- ing, there are pockets of non-under- standing," she added. The Navy performs its own cyber- security audits, beyond those of U.S. Cyber Command, to scour the serv- Sending cyber sense down the Navy chain of command fewer security clearances have been issued by agencies since scal 2011 9% Trending ice s networks for vulnerabilities. Although they occur only once every three years, those inspections cover more platforms and commands than is mandated by U.S. Cyber Command, she said. The inspections offer a "snapshot in time" of a Navy ship or other asset s vulnerabilities. Commanders are grad- ed on the security of their unclassi ed and classi ed systems, and those who receive poor grades must develop a plan for improvements. Something as seemingly benign as a smartphone plugged in for charging could threat- en a Navy network if the device is not secured. Tighe said she would like to use those inspections and compliance requirements for outside users of Navy networks as a means of making the service more secure. "Tightening the screws on those as we move for- ward...raises the standard by which we re operating as a Navy," she added. The collaboration needed among the military services and U.S. Cyber Com- mand to enhance cyberdefense across the Defense Department is improving, she said, citing her time working at U.S. Cyber Command at its inception. Com- manders were then narrowly focused on defending their individual networks, but that is changing to a more holistic approach. "Yes, we have different types of net- works. Yes, we have different ways that we deliver those networks to our serv- ices," she said. "But there is common- ality in terms of how we approach the ght; there is commonality in how we talk to our service leaders about these problems." --- Sean Lyngaas FCW CALENDAR Leadership Gen.
