Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, head of U.S. Army Cyber Command, believes the U.S. military could respond to changes in the cyber domain with “a much tighter” government-industry partnerships, Defense News reported Thursday.

He told an audience at a Association of the U.S. Army breakfast that work is underway to establish an organization that would allow industry access to the military’s cyber requirements, Joe Gould reports.

Cardon said the Army needs a virtual cyber network integration evaluation for industry to develop new technologies in collaboration with U.S. forces, according to the report.

He also said virtualization, big data and quantum-based mobile encryption technologies function as indicators of a government-industry relationship, the report says.

Gould writes the Army plans to form cyber force that will perform offensive and defensive operations against cyber attacks.

The Army also wants to establish a cyber branch that will consolidate forces from military intelligence and signals branches into the cyber force, Defense News reports.
