DoD’s Richard Hale: Cloud, IoT, Computer Settings on Cyber ‘Wish List’

cybersecurityRichard Hale, chief information security officer at the Defense Department, has said security tools for embedded computing in the Internet of Things, cloud and computer settings are on his “wish list” of technologies, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Aliya Sternstein writes that Hale hopes to address emerging security risks in interconnected devices and boost the timeliness, coordination and ease of threat responses.

Hale told his audience at a Security Innovation Network forum that the department is looking at automation for decision-making and information-sharing processes to combat an attack and exchange threat information instantly.

“We need to get to the point where we can share information on an automated basis and that we understand both the syntax and the semantics of the information that we’re sharing,” Peter Fonash, chief technology officer of the Department of Homeland Security‘s office of cybersecurity and communications, said during the forum.

The report said Hale also wants a tool to manage policy or computer settings across all DoD networks to enable the department to “maneuver” its response efforts.
