Navy Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, commander of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, believes the Defense Department is on track toward its goal of hiring the right number of cyber workforce, Nextgov reported Monday.

Aliya Sternstein writes the U.S. Cyber Command seeks to complete the creation of 133 cyber teams across the military and plans to achieve a 6,200-strong cyber workforce by 2016.

“As we have continued to grow the cyber mission force, we’re getting the right numbers of people,” Tighe told the Billington Cybersecurity Summit in Washington.

“Whether we are getting the right people is still yet to be determined,” Tighe said at the event.
