In his forward to the U.S. Tenth Fleet’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025, Vice Admiral T. J. White stated that he is “certain the opening rounds of a 21st-century great power conflict, particularly one impacting the maritime domain, will be launched in the electromagnetic, space, or cyber domains.” The Navy currently relies on a small team of experts to extend its grasp into this new realm of armed conflict. This is not the right approach. What it needs instead is a core of naval professionals with the skills and tools to make risk-based decisions in offensive and defensive cyber conflict.
