Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski, U.S. Air Force Materiel Command leader, highlighted her emphasis on cyber resiliency and hardening functions at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber conference Wednesday.
The Cyber Resiliency Steering Group led by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, AFMC and Air Force Space Command has developed a Air Force Cyber Campaign Plan that covers seven lines of attack.
“The focus of this group was to take a look and understand first of all what was the threat and what … should we do in order to ensure that our weapons systems were secure from this cyber threat,” said Pawlikowski.
The plan aims to cover mission thread analysis, development of cyber resiliency tools and expertise, security, intelligence, use and protection of current resources to identify and address the cause of cyber vulnerabilities.
The Defense Department established the Cyber Resiliency Steering Group in a push to build up cyber resiliency of weapons systems.
