Securing the Fifth Domain
Just over 10 years ago, the face of the United States Military changed when Defense Secretary Robert Gates declared cyberspace a warfighting domain and established U.S. Cyber Command to protect and defend it. The newly coined “cyber warriors” developed highly sophisticated tactics, techniques and procedures aimed at defending the nation in cyberspace and readied themselves for warfare if called upon by the President or Secretary of Defense. Today, those precision tools and fighting capabilities have advanced exponentially as the command engages ever more skilled and resourceful adversaries. Securing the Fifth Domain: Origins of the United States Cyber Command, is the debut title by veteran cyber warrior and industry leader Tony Lawrence. In the book, Lawrence explores the origins of U.S. Cyber Command and the impact the command has had on America’s fight for superiority in cyberspace.
