"DOD Announces First Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace"

  "The Department of Defense released today the DoD Strategy for
   Operating in Cyberspace (DSOC).  It is the first DoD unified strategy
   for cyberspace and officially encapsulates a new way forward for
   DoD's military, intelligence and business operations."
  ""The cyber threats we face are urgent, sometimes uncertain and
   potentially devastating as adversaries constantly search for
   vulnerabilities," said Deputy Secretary of Defense William J. Lynn III.
  "Our infrastructure, logistics network and business systems are heavily
   computerized.  With 15,000 networks and more than seven million
   computing devices, DoD continues to be a target in cyberspace for
   malicious activity.""
