This talk contextualized cyberwarfare with patterns of conflict throughout history. While the basic nature of war is constant, the means and methods we use evolve continuously. Agile development is now 20 years old and industry practice has evolved to DevSecOps. We explained what DevSecOps is, and why it is critical to the time-competitive cybersecurity environment of today. Most importantly, we demystified how NATO can utilize the U.S. DoD DevSecOps reference architecture to easily and quickly adopt DevSecOps for platform environments and mission applications.
The Alliance for Commercial Technology in Government represents startups and the commercial tech sector, advocating for policies that can improve our government services and maintain our competitive advantage by bringing more tech into government programs.
The COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting effects on the U.S. military and how it operates in the future. Hundreds of airmen completing the U.S. Air Force Weapons School’s (USAFWS) rigorous coursework were left without a way to collaborate in real time while planning the final capstone exercise. The U.S. Air Force Weapons School Integration (WSINT) exercise is a series of complex, large-force employment missions, converging over the Nevada Test and Training Range. WSINT previously necessitated co- location of all participants at Nellis AFB. BrainGu is a cutting-edge software innovation lab that supports operators across the DoD. BrainGu partnered with the USAF in order to produce the Web-based Information Dominant Warfare (WIDOW) Mission Planning Software within only five weeks. WIDOW exceeded mission and operator needs, enabling WSINT participants to plan in a modern and collaborative environment.
