Chris Lynch: DoD Digital Service Continues Cyber Work Against Malicious Attacks

cyber-hack-network-computerThe Defense Department system has been under constant attack with more than a billion malicious hits on the defense.gov website over the past few years, DoD News reported Friday.

Jim Garamone writes Chris Lynch, U.S. Digital Service director, said his organization composed of private-sector information technology specialists work to bring best practices from the civilian world to the government and use its abilities to build and ship products to address challenges for strategic projects.

The report added it also looks to launch another round of “Hack the Pentagon,” the first federal government bug bounty program.

“Lots of money had been spent on everything from technology to the teams that were running the infrastructure, but when you think about it, we spent a lot of time focused on the networks themselves and not necessarily the applications that are running on top of it,” noted Lynch.
