Description

 In April 2015, then-Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter unveiled his department’s new guidance on how the U.S. military should address the myriad challenges emerging in the cyberspace domain to a group of technology-savvy leaders.  The 2015 Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Strategy builds upon the foundation of a 2011 strategy and stays true to its three primary missions, as well as overarching national security strategies—but can the new strategy work?

In this monograph, Mr. Jeffrey Caton explores various aspects of this question by examining the historical context, traditional strategy elements, subsequent DoD action, and whole-of-government approach contained within the 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy. He argues that positive assessments of the strategy’s suitability, feasibility, and acceptability for implementation may be predicated upon the vagueness of the strategy’s overarching intent. Further, he contends that the strategy is hampered by its own lack of clear end state, prioritization of efforts, and full context of the cyberspace realm writ large. Mr. Caton also provides recommendations for future cyberspace-related defense strategies in hope of improving their effectiveness.
