DARPA Boosts Cybersecurity Research Spending 50%

InformationWeek: The Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA) said it needs to spend $208 million on cyber research in 2012, up from $120 million in 2011. In all, the agency that created the Internet plans to boost spending 50 percent over the next five years as it builds the country’s offensive and defensive cyberwar capabilities.

“Modern warfare will demand the effective use of cyber, kinetic, and combined cyber and kinetic means,” said agency director Regina Dugan. “We need more options, we need more speed, and we need more scale. We must both protect its peaceful shared use as well as prepare for hostile cyber acts that threaten our military capabilities.”
