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.

VADM Hilarides coins phrase "CYBERTIGHT"
VADM WILLIAM HILARIDES, USN
COMMANDER, NAVAL SEA SYSTEMS COMMAND
OCTOBER 21, 2015
"The way we think to do that is to basically create water-tight
compartments, cyber-tight compartments, create enclaves that
have defined connection points, just a few connection points
between the ship’s LAN and the combat system, maybe only one,
between the navigation system and combat, between machinery
controls and navigation, those sort of things." Unlike it's parallel phrase - watertight - all hands can't contribute to the fight during a cyber attack to make your system cyber-tight. The skills are far too specialized - as is the access to the cyber tools.
