Grier Forensics recently sponsored and presented at the 6th annual Joint C2 Summit, hosted by the Defense Strategies Institute (DSI).
The event brings together all US military branches with other government organizations to move forward with a Joint All-Domain Command and Control infrastructure and system, or JADC2. JADC2 is a Department of Defense (DOD’s) concept to connect sensors from all of the military services—Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Space Force—into a single network.
The town hall-style event presented an opportunity for the military, government, academia, and industry to openly share challenges, solutions, and progress toward the first phase of deploying JADC2 in an emerging data-saturated operational environment.
The Summit presented new technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence, and edge computing as both challenges and opportunities for a true joint C2 ecosystem. But hardening and securing such technologies across a wide network presents its own challenges. This is where Grier Forensics contributed our expertise.
Jonathan Grier presented the capabilities of FireSky to serve as a protection and defense solution for securing the Joint C2 ecosystem. FireSky’s threat intelligence platform was purpose-developed for the high-security requirements of military operations to provide cyber defense, agility, and real-time threat intelligence for contested tactical IP networks. Jonathan discussed the impact FireSky could have on securing and managing the data and access within such an ecosystem. His talk was well-received and discussions following showed the interest in solutions like FireSky.
Early efforts to ensure the integrity and security of JADC2 infrastructure are critical to its success. Grier Forensics is proud to contribute to these and other efforts to build the resiliency and strength of our joint military capabilities. After all, one closed fist is stronger than five open fingers.
