Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

Cyberspace is at the bottom of the ocean
"The world of cyber is going to dominate thinking and investment in a significant way over the next few years. Cyber, as many folks would look at it, if you look at the ubiquitous power point slides that have a little lightning bolt going up to the satellites and running around down to earth. That’s not cyber space. Cyber space is on the bottom of the ocean because 95 percent of what moves in cyber space moves on cables that rest on the bottom of the ocean. That’s the maritime domain. That’s the domain of the United States Navy. And the entire undersea area or resources, I believe the resource competition in the future will also drive what we do and where we do it."
