US Cyber Command Chief: We’ll Strike Back More Aggressively to Deter Attacks

The head of US Cyber Command told Congress Wednesday the agency is ready to respond more aggressively to cyber attacks. With a 10 percent boost in its budget for 2020, CYBERCOM hopes to plug “significant breaches” in the US Navy’s cyber defenses in particular.

US Army Gen. Paul Nakasone, who heads both US Cyber Command and the National Security Agency, told the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Intelligence and Emerging Threats and Capabilities Wednesday that the US is prepared to more aggressively strike back in response to cyber attacks. His statement follows a US Navy report detailing how the service has failed to protect sensitive information from Chinese and Russian hackers.
