Mr. Doug Wiltsie, PEO EIS

As part of Department of Defense (DOD) network modernization efforts, the Army continues to optimize operational effectiveness, increase network and information security and improve efficiencies to enable success for today and tomorrow.

Delivering network capabilities to the Army is a team effort - we are all responsible for doing our part to ensure that the network is effective, efficient and secure, and that we continue to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars and trust.

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Army Commercial Cloud Services Provider (CSP) Policy guidance. This policy complements the successful release of the Army Cloud Strategy in March, and for the first time in the Army’s history, provides a defined path for acquiring and using Commercial Cloud Services Providers (CSPs). This policy guidance supports the Under Secretary of the Army memorandum (Migration of Army Enterprise Systems/Applications to Core Data Centers) that was published 09 June 2014 and DoD CIO memorandum (SUBJECT: Updated Guidance on the Acquisition and Use of Commercial Cloud Computing Services) that was published 15 December 2014.

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter unveiled the new Department of Defense Cyber Strategy in an address at Stanford University in Silicon Valley, California, April 23, 2015.

An update to the original strategy released in 2011, it identifies specific cyber missions for DoD and sets strategic goals to achieve over the next five years and beyond. These missions and goals will guide the development of DoD's cyber forces and strengthen our cyber defense and cyber deterrence posture. I encourage all to familiarize themselves with the new DoD strategy to gain a better understanding of how it will inform the Army's mission, priorities and way-ahead.

Last week, we were honored to have U.S. Army Signal Corps leaders from around the globe attend our annual Signal Forum in McLean, VA. It proved to be a tremendous opportunity to enhance the knowledge, collaboration and teamwork of our Signal Regiment. We had valuable discussions on the Army Network Campaign Plan; the Army Operating Concept; modernizing our Army Network; moving capabilities to the cloud - and how to work with our partners in the sister services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Industry and Academia.
