Vice Adm. Jan Tighe: Navy Creates Digital Warfare Office to Promote Data Use

Jan Tighe

The U.S. Navy has established a digital warfare office within the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations to promote the use of data science across the service branch, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jared Serbu writes Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, deputy CNO for information warfare, said the new digital warfare office that she will also oversee aims to promote “smarter” use of data across various functional areas such as financial systems.

“We need to spend less time going and finding the data we need to make a decision and come to a better construct where the machine can gather the information, do some analysis and present it to the person who needs to make the decision,” Tighe told the station.

The Navy stood up the digital warfare office using a similar approach that the military branch used in the 2014 Task Force Cyber Awakening project that incorporated cybersecurity into all Navy processes, Serbu reported.
