AFCYBER CC speaks at Texas A&M

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas -- Maj. Gen. Chris Weggeman, Air Forces Cyber commander, provides closing remarks during a cybersecurity conference Feb. 8, 2018, at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Several cybersecurity industry experts, policy makers and stakeholders also spoke during the event, which was hosted by Atlantic Council, Victor Pinchuk Foundation and Texas A&M University-San Antonio. "The phrase 'cyber war,' to me is all wrong," Weggeman said during his closing remarks. "It's missing a word. And the word is cyber 'in' war. [It's the] same with 'cyber deterrence.' It's cyber 'in' deterrence ... It's all about how does cyber play a role and contribute ... It's a more accurate representation of the way we need to apply the capabilities and tool, tactics, techniques and procedures we have at our disposal." (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. R.J.
