TechNet wraps up conference in Augusta
On the last day of TechNet Augusta, officials stressed the importance of collaboration and cooperation between industry, the military and academia to the army’s future.
The army is in a race to modernize cyber capabilities.
That’s the takeaway from TechNet Augusta, which ended Thursday with a closing keynote from Maj. Gen. James Mingus, commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division, who stressed the importance of cyber’s strategic integration into combat missions.
“Cyber can be a combined arms operation in and of itself but it’s even more powerful if it’s part of a combined arms maneuver concept of operations from the beginning,” he said.
