Pentagon seeks tight ties with cyber contractors

“The Defense Department aims to tighten ties with its cyber security contractors to help thwart mounting threats to sensitive networks, the Pentagon’s top official for cyber policy said Wednesday.

The department’s use of top-level system integrators and entrepreneurs will continue to grow along with the need for so-called ‘active’ defenses that scan incoming code to shield network perimeters, Robert Butler, deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy, told reporters at a breakfast session.

‘And as we thread those together, what we want to do is a very very tight partnership with industry,’ he said.”
