SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. — U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) hosted cyber military leaders at the Command, Control, Communications, and Cyber Systems (C4) Roundtable on Jan. 18. Attendees included representatives from each combatant command, the Joint Force Headquarters Department of Defense Information Network (JFHQ-DODIN), and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
 
Centered on the theme "The Fight to get to the Fight," the roundtable underscored the critical nature of cybersecurity and logistics in national defense. According to the Commander of USTRANSCOM, Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, cyber-attacks are only increasing in scope and scale, and collaborative opportunities like this safeguards the global DOD information network.


In her keynote address, Van Ovost commended the attendees, saying, “I applaud and genuinely appreciate the work you are accomplishing for defense and security because the threats are changing daily at the pace of emerging technologies.”


USTRANSCOM, tasked with projecting and sustaining the joint force worldwide via air, land and sea to fulfill national security objectives, relies heavily on command, control and integration.


“We must dynamically match movement requirements against our capacities to determine how to synchronize these joint force priorities,” said Van Ovost. “There is a lot of logistics data and systems to do this [but there is also] noisy data on the unclassified systems that must be accessed, [which] is imperative to transform us into a data-centric organization.”


Van Ovost asserted that the command cannot succeed alone. To advance decision advantage requires partnerships, and deeper integration of cyber capabilities has never been more necessary than it is today.


“We have an inextricable link with our allies and partners,” she said. “Together, we will outpace the changing character of war and uphold international norms so we can deliver global deterrence or, if we must, prevail in conflict.”


The significance of personal interaction was evident, with many attendees traveling in to participate. Army Brig. Gen. James Turinetti, U.S. Central Command C4 director, remarked on the importance of face-to-face engagement in fostering learning and collaboration.


“We’re here openly discussing process improvements and exchanging ideas on operational tools across COCOMS; you just can’t get this kind of integration and collaboration anywhere else,” said Turinetti. 


As the event concluded, a collective realization emerged, said USTRANSCOM C4 Director Air Force Col. Ivory Carter: "We must continue to integrate, collaborate, and innovate.”


“With the cyber arena being as contested as it is, now is the time to have these tough conversations,” said Carter. “We know the adversaries want to deny, degrade and disrupt our ability to secure data in the cyber domain. Our integration is as critical as traditional warfare, so our time here today was invaluable.”
