The U.S. Army Cyber Command is gaming out the state of cyber security at local ports at a conference at The Citadel military college in Charleston, South Carolina.

U.S. Lieutenant General Stephen Fogarty spoke about the need to protect the defense and private sector through critical infrastructure resiliency. Since the Army largely deploys through ports that are under the control of state and local governments, the cyber defense support of civil authorities is critical. Improving civil cyber defense enhances national security.

“We require strategic mobility. Again, we don’t want to be fighting on our shores; we want to keep that offshore. We have to be able to get to the fight,” Lt. General Fogarty, commanding general of the U.S. Army Cyber Command, said. “For us, it’s making sure there’s clear understanding by civil authorities what our requirements are, what our expectations are, and then what we can [do] to assist them and protect that strategic capability for the nation.”
