Cyberspace Convergence

Defining and integrating a new domain

July 1, 2019 by Rick Brown, Director of Strategic Cyber


When criminals stole 45 million credit cards by hacking a major retailer in 2005, the world was put on notice that cyber threats were here and real. Cyber security at that time focused on a series of traps and sensors on wired networks - mainly at perimeters. Information assurance was something different. Network management was something different. Electromagnetic spectrum operations were something entirely different.

In the past two years, these disciplines have aggressively converged. Combined teams conduct network defense and management. Patching and related tasks are now part of basic cyber hygiene. Tools, data, and training are starting to cross traditional boundaries. In addition to discipline and technology convergence, operational coordination across organizational boundaries in cyberspace has become a focal point.

IT Cadre expects this convergence to accelerate. Integrated solutions will replace stand-alone or siloed capabilities, and IT Cadre is proud to help inform the way ahead.
