NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The nature of cyber-attacks can vastly enhance their reach and impact due to the fact that attackers do not need to be physically close to their victims and can more easily remain anonymous, among other things. The magnitude of the threat is compounded by the ever-increasing sophistication of cyber-attack techniques, such as attacks that may combine multiple techniques. Using these techniques, hackers can target individuals, businesses, critical infrastructures, or government organizations.

The U.S. Cyber Command’s mission is to deter or defeat strategic threats to U.S. interests and infrastructure, provide mission assurance for the operations and defense of the DoD information environment, and support the achievement of Joint Force Commander objectives. USCYBERCOM, in conjunction with the services and national agencies, is working to develop and expand infrastructure architectures and capabilities/tools to support Cyber Mission Forces (CMF). The U.S. effort was restructured to the Cyber Operations Technology Development program to facilitate the alignment of resources to capabilities. The focus is on four broad program areas:

Common Services -- enables Cyber Mission Forces to conduct full-spectrum cyber operations.

Access Platforms - develops techniques to access networks.

Tools - develops tools necessary to gain access to networks.

Analytics - enables Cyber Mission Forces to store, correlate, and analyze data collected.

As more and more network breaches occur and data theft is discovered, the amount of funding pumped into DoD cyberspace - specifically cybersecurity - efforts can be expected ebb and flow as new threats appear and new counters developed.
