The “Absolutely Critical” Cyber Domain

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne wants to know how to prepare, mass, and deliver precision strike in cyberspace. Speaking Oct. 20 at Johns Hopkins University to the Precision Strike Association, Wynne talked broadly about many Air Force initiatives, saying that defending and fighting in the cyber domain is “absolutely critical” to maintain air, space, sea, and ground operations. Wynne maintained that attaining and maintaining cyberspace dominance will improve the “information mosaic” which he described as the “whole net of data—analog and digital, pixels and composites images—from all sensors that can be collected and downloaded and cross-loaded for use by all in the fight.”
