The threat to the U.S. Navy from cyber intrusion has become a crisis. Hackers, particularly those from Russia and China, are not limiting themselves to attacks on computers and networks. Now they are engaged in a massive assault on the entire Navy enterprise, including ships, weapons systems, research and development establishments, the supply chain, and shore facilities. According to a recent report, the Navy and its private sector partners are inadequately prepared to deal with the growing threat. But the Navy is working to improve the security of its systems and networks. Critical to this effort will be the adoption of technologies and techniques that provide continual monitoring of all networks and devices and the prompt identification and isolation of non-compliant devices and software. I have written more about this subject here.
