Ron Marks, Chair of the Intelligence Program at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security, discusses the relationship between the recently announced cyber policies with the larger national defense framework, and how they could be developed further.


The White House’s Cyber Strategy and the Department of Defense’s Cyber Strategy will guide the United States’ cyberwarfare policy for the near future, but how does it interact with the larger National Security Strategy. Ron Marks, Chair of the Intelligence Program at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security says that policy development in this field takes years to fully realize.   “There’s a whole series of these documents, one is the National Security Strategy, which essentially lays out from the president ‘Here’s what I’m worried about for the next 2-3 years’ and there are adjustments to that over time. The DoD strategy, the intelligence strategy come out of that and then you start to get the military strategy, which is essentially how are we going to position ourselves. From there you start to get individual policies and that’s where the cyber policy is coming from. It looks a little bit like Plinko for those of us who watch The Price is Right,” Marks said. “We’ve now arrived at the point near the two-year mark, where people are now concerned about what we are going to be doing with cyber… It is very clear that the NSC has laid out a very firm plan in terms of being much more aggressive in response. It’s still not altogether clear what DHS is doing in this but DoD has laid out a fairly aggressive policy.”
