Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford: Army to Highlight Security in New Data Strategy

Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford

Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford, chief information officer/G-6 of the U.S. Army, said the service branch’s upcoming data strategy will focus on security, Fifth Domain reported Wednesday.

The new strategy will significantly involve the service’s Artificial Intelligence Task Force, a unit currently developing AI-driven target recognition technology. Crawford said the task force awaits the strategy to establish a common foundation for applying AI technologies.

“If you don’t have security baked-in from the beginning in a DevSecOps-like environment, then [first] you’re not going to be protected and secure, and [second] you’re going to spend a lot of resources individually trying to attack the security problem,” Crawford told C4ISRNet Wednesday at the Association of the U.S. Army’s conference.

The new strategy would also address the lack of security guidance of the Army’s previous 2016 strategy.
