Lt. Gen. Maria B. Barrett spoke on the successes and challenges in the growth of the Army’s cyber workforce for the information age, at the Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association’s Cyber Education, Research and Training Symposium (CERTS) in Augusta, Ga., May 11, 2022.
The event marked Barrett’s first major speaking engagement since she assumed command of U.S. Army Cyber Command a week earlier.
Barrett said that with continuing instability across the world and America’s adversaries increasingly seeking to achieve their strategic aims below the level of armed conflict and to separate us from our partners, the integration of cyber, electronic warfare (EW) and information operations (IO) is becoming increasingly critical. The cyber and EW part of that equation is progressing well, she said, and now IO must be further drawn into the mix.
