In this podcast Patrick Gray talks to Tom Uren about the a thought bubble floated by military cyber professionals that the US armed forces needs a US Cyber Force. The justification is a bit light on and Tom doesn’t really think the proposal makes sense.

They also discuss US Cyber Command’s “Hunt Forward” operations. In these operations partner countries invite CYBERCOM in to hunt for adversary activity.
