Vice Adm. Nancy Norton: DISA Eyes Industry Partnerships to Support Warfighters in Cyber Space

Vice Adm. Nancy Norton, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has said DISA believes that partnerships with industry could help lighten up the burden and result in stability that “can generate much-needed economic growth.”

Norton noted in her opening remarks at DISA’s 2018 Forecast to Industry event in Linthicum, Md., how the agency builds up partnerships, introduce reforms to the Defense Department and boost warfighters’ lethality in support of Defense Secretary James Mattis’ three lines of effort, DISA said Monday.

She discussed the event’s theme “Trusted Partnerships” and how collaboration with industry could help develop new capabilities for soldiers.

“Creating trusted partnerships supports DISA’s vision to be the trusted provider to connect and protect the warfighter in cyberspace,” Norton said.

Other speakers at the event include Dana Deasy, chief information officer at DoD; Tony Montemarano, DISA executive deputy director; and David Bennett, operations center director at DISA.
