On April 18, 2016, DoD Chief Information Officer, Terry Halvorsen discussed the need to modernize DoD networks as part of the Department’s cybersecurity strategy. The DoD also aims to consolidate data centers, empowering mobile data access, and facilitating cooperation and short-term personnel trades between government and industry cybersecurity workers. The DoD is focused on their shift to the Joint Regional Security Stacks, a centrally managed, regionally based suite of security appliances, to secure networks and reduce the number of access points that can be attacked.
