The Army wants more coders alongside operators
By: Mark Pomerleau   

The Army has discovered that one of the keys to success in cyber operations is to embed tool developers and coders alongside operators.

The military has long relied upon contractor support for coding and software development. However, in an operational environment that can change in milliseconds, forces need coders that can adjust to these changes in real time.

“When we built the mission force initially, it was this idea that we would pool the developers at a very central location. If you’re on a team, you conduct an operation, you would send a problem up, they would work it and they would send it down,” Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, commander of Army Cyber Command, said Sept. 4 at the Billington cybersecurity conference in Washington. “In practice, that just doesn’t work.”
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
