Maj. Audricia Harris: DoD Works to Strengthen Cyber Defense Posture

Maj. Audricia Harris, a spokesperson for the Defense Department, has said that DoD takes national security threats seriously and works to update its cyber defense approaches, CNN reported Tuesday.

"We are continuously strengthening our defensive posture through network hardening, improved cybersecurity and working with our international allies and our defense industrial base and defense critical infrastructure partners to secure critical information," Harris was quoted as saying by CNN.

She made the remarks after the Government Accountability Office released a report describing DoD's challenges to secure weapon systems against sophisticated threats and the factors that could affect the department's efforts to protect those systems.

GAO did not issue any recommendations and noted it will continue to examine the state of military weapons security.
