U.S. adversaries like China and Russia are stepping up efforts to engage in cyber attacks and disinformation campaigns. Those actions are part of the gray zone, an area of intensifying strategic competition. The increasing frequency of adversarial efforts is revealing cracks in the U.S. government’s data sharing and analyses.

  • Emily Harding, deputy director and senior fellow for the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the government needs a wide variety of data points to investigate gray zone threats and can use open source information, such as press reporting, to help track activity.
  • Harding said detection involves auditors trained to look for “subtle oddities” and development of a highly skilled tech workforce, which is a major challenge for government and industry.
  • Harding said data interoperability is essential and that the U.S. military has made progress in this area with its Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE), run by NORTHCOM.
