U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Alan Lynn, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has discussed DISA’s priorities as part of efforts to help defend the nation’s networks from threats, DoD News reported Monday.

Lynn said in a recorded video message for DISA’s 2015 Forecast to Industry event in Washington that the agency looks to expand its partnership with industry to develop an infrastructure that is resilient in the event of a cyber attack, Lisa Ferdinando reports.

Lynn also said DISA seeks private sector companies with the capability to innovate, according to the report.

“We need that innovation to help us find and develop better commercial solutions for defending our infrastructure,” he told the event.
