20,000 Cyberspace Defenders

“I found out we have over 20,000 people working in cyberspace,” said Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne at a recent Senior Leadership Orientation Course in Washington. “We are the logisticians of information,” he said, adding, “we pick it up everywhere” and send it through space and back down to the ground station and “into the hands of the commander, just in time.” Speaking to a new group of brigadier general selectees who were attending the training, Wynne emphasized that cyberspace is a “domain the Air Force could now be dominating.”
