U.S. DOD General Counsel Speaks at Cyber Command Conference

She highlights the legal efforts addressing cyber theft.

During the recent U.S. Cyber Command Legal Conference at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Department of Defense General Counsel, Caroline Krass spoke regarding the significant function of the law and Pentagon’s legal community in advancing combined preventative cyber theft. This topic was the department’s main priority in the 2022 National Defense Strategy (NDS).

General Counsel Krass summarized cyberspace competitors “seeking to steal our technology, undermine our military advantages, threaten our critical infrastructure, disrupt our government and commerce, weaken our collective prosperity, and challenge our democratic processes.”

In identifying the importance of having the support of the legal community both domestically and internationally, in connection with cyber activities, she added, “The United States believes that our compliance with international law in the cyber domain is a foundation for the legitimacy of our military operations.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For General Counsel Krass as she addresses the prevention of cyber crimes.
  • For Pentagon officials as methods to protect cyber security are implemented.
  • For Secretary Austin as he oversees the Defense Department.
