LIGHTENING ROUND DEBATES: (Audience Participation)
  1. Cybersecurity Assessments:
    1. Part of the development fielded operations OR
    2. A continuous process of security testing
  2. My Threat Assessment is better than your threat assessment:
    1. Adoption of a common operating picture (COP) approach to threat assessment sharing
    2. Independent approaches to threat assessment (My Way or the Highway)
  3. An Honest Discussion: Let’s drop the secret squirrel stuff:
    1. You can’t see my vehicle OR
    2. Openness for A&L type vehicle systems with direct, full engagement of the commercial community –for non-tactical
  4. Loving the subcomponents traditionally sourced from China:
    1. Is your procurement system the threat OR
    2. Do we flow validated need statements to have trusted production down to the sub-component level (SoC and radio components – including computers)
  5. So… Are we:
    1. Fans of cyber being an adjunct to the design and development process and the bolt-on security that comes with that model OR
    2. Fans of cyber overlay to the military DODAF development system so we can;
  • Map cyber-requirements during the design and development phase and tie the issues throughout the cycle
