October is Army Cybersecurity Awareness Month – our annual campaign to improve the Army’s security posture by increasing awareness of organizational cybersecurity practices and training. It is an opportunity to build a culture of cybersecurity awareness throughout our entire workforce. This year's theme is “Stay Protected While Connected” which appropriately emphasizes individual and leader responsibilities for protecting the Army against cybersecurity threats that endanger personnel, compromise operations, and consume resources.

In addition to the joint force, the Army operates alongside a wide array of mission partners. These partners include allied and coalition members, international agencies and non-governmental organizations. As a result, the Mission Partner Environment (MPE) creates complex interoperability and communication challenges. I just returned from Gaborone, Botswana where I had the opportunity to observe elements of AFRICA ENDEAVOR (AE).

AE is U.S. Africa Command's (USAFRICOM) J6 Capstone engagement and annual, five-day Senior Leader Communications Symposium, focused on strategic level Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) Techniques, Tactics, and Procedures (TTPs) to encourage communications interoperability and information sharing among our African partners. To date, through Africa Endeavor our partners have trained more than 1,800 communications specialists and military planners in C4 techniques, tactics and procedures. This year AE had participants from 40 African nations, six non-African partner nations, six international organizations, and all USAFRICOM components.

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.
