Reuters: MDA Carries Out Continues Network Monitoring Exercise Against Cyber Threats

cyber-hack-network-computerThe U.S. Missile Defense Agency has conducted several monitoring efforts on its classified and unclassified networks in an effort to address potential cyber threats against MDA’s weapons programs, Reuters reported Thursday.

Navy Vice Adm. and MDA Director James Syring told House lawmakers Thursday the agency seeks to defend its network and is working with private contractors to establish cyber security requirements for future contracts, according to the report by Andrea Shalal.

Syring said constant cyber attacks on the agency’s networks pose a threat equivalent to the development of mass destruction weapons in Iran and North Korea and has prompted the agency to invest in research and development projects for new technology to prepare against foreign ballistic missile threats.
