Supporting the Coast Guard Cyber Strategy through Cyber Guard

“This is part of the Coast Guard’s embrace of cyberspace as an operating domain,” said Rear Adm. Marshall Lytle, assistant commandant for C4IT and commander of Coast Guard Cyber Command. “We’re starting with a small team at Coast Guard Cyber Command performing computer network defense functions that provide initial protect, detect and respond missions to cyber incidents. We need to continue to build capacity and capability, and form a team of Coast Guardsmen based on cyber skills to perform specialized tasks to detect and defend against attackers and support DOD’s defend the nation mission.”
