Vast Pacific Region Has Big Responsibilities

Resilience is an enabler, but it is not just one thing. It involves making progress with redundancy, sensors, computing capacity, bandwidth and connectivity, says Brig. Gen. Paul H. Fredenburgh III, USA, director, Command, Control, Communications and Cyber (C4), PACOM (r), in a panel discussion exploring international issues.

Mission assurance and resilience can be interpreted differently, but having relevant tools and capabilities, developing solid multilateral partnerships and employing a trained work force are critical requirements for meeting many mission objectives.


Solutions and Partnerships Evolve Out of Conference of Consequence

Mission assurance and resilience can be interpreted differently, but having the tools, capabilities, partnerships and skilled work force that can respond to a variety of scenarios in a flexible manner is the ultimate goal.


Plan for Potential Degraded Operations

Rear Adm. Matthew J. Carter, USN, deputy commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet discusses resiliency at TechNet Asia-Pacific.

The low-cost entry to access the same technology the military uses leaves open the possibility for embedded attacks on the technology we depend on.


Sharing Information Supports Resiliency

Reliance on C4 capabilities demands resiliency and cybersecurity baked into all aspects of system operations, bringing confidence in resilient communications to the warfighter. Speaking on a panel that addressed this topic were, l to r: Col. Jay Matos, USMC; Col. Joseph E. Delaney, USMC; Brig. Gen. Paul H. Fredenburgh III, USA;  Brig. Gen. Stephen C. Williams, USAF; and Col. James D. (Jim) Turinetti, IV, USA. Also on the panel was James Williams.

Technology is rapidly changing, providing opportunities as well as challenges.


Speed, Resiliency Drive Cybersecurity Ideas

Panelists discuss the need for cybersecurity internationally during TechNet Asia-Pacific.

It is essential to learn from cyber attacks conducted by state and nonstate actors to define resilience for cybersecurity or cyber terrorism.


Tech Job Vacancies Change Hiring Culture

Leadership will be challenged to manage and communicate differently with work force of the future, said TechNet Asia-Pacific panelists, l-r: Master Sgt. Brandon T. Cruz, USAF; John C. Adams; Capt. Herman L. Archibald, USN; Sam M.P. Sneed, director, ES&, Inc.; and Jeffrey T. Jacoby.

Technology is rapidly expanding, and as a result, we must deal with changes in our organizations as well as in personal communications. 


Is Big Data Up to the Military Challenge?

Tools that help the big data problem are one of the technologies most desired in the cyber realm, according to panelists at AFCEA TechNet Asia-Pacific., l-r: Maj Gen. Jeffrey A. Kruse, USAF; Capt. Dale C. Rielage, USN; Lt. Col. Ed Guevara, USAF; Col. Pete Don, USA; and Col. Matt Rau, USMC.

Today’s Internet of Things world saturates us with big data across all domains. We need a complete picture to enable decisions.
