Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, head of U.S. Army Cyber Command, has described his vision of a military organization that aligns all operations to support the cybersecurity mission, the Augusta Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Wesley Brown writes that Cardon told an audience at this week’s TechNet Augusta military conference in Georgia that the Army can concentrate its efforts to boost cyber defenses against hybrid warfare.

“[Our] adversaries are merging information capabilities to achieve operational and even strategic effects,” Cardon said.

“The question is: Can we adapt? Do we have the will to intellectually converge?”

Brown reports that Cardon’s proposal aims to unify the Army’s cyber efforts amid recent attacks attributed to foreign governments such as China and Russia.
