If it helps at all, Sir, I also twitch at the word cyber. Just when other people say it.
But this does renew my wondering why the DoD generally, and the Army Signal Corps in particular, conceded the cyber security mission to the Air Force with out so much as a debate.
The Air Force’s top officer said he twitches when he says the word “cyber.” He explained that “we have a lot of people in this discussion who don’t really know what they’re talking about” when it comes to cyber issues.
“I know because they’re all like me,” Welsh said to more laughter from the crowd.
He didn’t question whether the Air Force needed to take cyber security seriously. He sees it as a priority. Welsh called it the future — “no doubt in my mind.”
