U.S. NAVY (WILLIAM SYKES)

While every other military has a single cyber designator, the Navy has three distinct cyber communities. Cryptologic warfare officers, information professionals, and cyber warfare engineers are presently in charge of the Navy’s cyber operations. CWOs are in charge of offense and defense cyber operations, IPs are in charge of managing information technology systems, and CWEs are in charge of the technical engineering work that supports cyber operations. As a result, each of the three groups is beset with unneeded issues, and none of them is completely equipped or capable of leading the realm. The Navy must concentrate control for cyber, engage in the cyber warfare engineer community, and need deep technical competence for all cyber responsibilities to tackle this problem.
