CG Cyber Command–Federal News Radio

Federal News Radio has a short overview of the Coast Guard’s growing Cyber Command.

“…Congress appropriated almost $4.5 million for 64 billets in FY 17 to help generate the Coast Guard’s first cyber commands…”

That is certainly not a lot of money or people by government standards, but they have important work.

  1. There was a cyber command at Ft. Meade a few years back, did they have a budget? Is this to bolster their command there?

    • From what I gather, the Coast Guard recognized a need for cyber and took billets out of hide to do it. Apparently this was the first line item to specifically address providing a cyber capability.
