Aaron Hughes, deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy, suggests there needs to be a “more nimble” acquisition process for the U.S. Cyber Command’s Cyber National Mission Force, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Hughes told the Center for Strategic and International Studies that he believes a pilot program could provide what he describes as an “exquisite acquisition” to the CYBERCOM, Sydney Freedberg Jr. reports.

“We could potentially see that in the coming years,” Hughes said.

Maj. Gen. Paul Nakasone, the CYBERCOM Mission Force commander, also told the Center for Strategic and International Studies the command has begun to develop its own tools in collaboration with the intelligence community and industry, according to the report.
