USMC DCIO on Cybersecurity and the Culture of Mobility (VIDEO)

Cyber crime is becoming more profitable than drugs as hostile nations devote more money and resources into stealing data online, U.S. Marine Corps Deputy Chief Information Officer James Craft said in an interview with FedScoopTV.

Craft said cyber crime and security, along with culture and budget constraints, are the three largest obstacles facing the government and military when it comes to adopting mobile solutions.

For government agencies to adopt mobility, Craft said there must be a culture in place that is innovative, agile and disciplined.


“They have to understand that using a government device can’t be handled like a cute app in a bar,” Craft said.

As for the budget, Craft said the budget can cause problems for already lean organizations that don’t have much left to cut.
