Defense in the Age of Cyber-Warfare: FY2020 Budget Highlights

Future wars will be waged not just in the air, on the land, and at sea, but also in outer space and cyberspace, increasing the complexity of warfare. In an effort to preserve U.S. cyberspace superiority and stop cyber attacks before they hit our networks, the DoD will invest more than $9.6 billion in cyber security programs, solutions and infrastructure in 2020. The infographic below highlights where the money is going and how these investments will help prepare the Joint Forces to face the threats and challenges of the increasingly complex security environment of the cyber era by:

  • Reducing risk to DoD networks, systems, and information by investing in more cybersecurity capabilities
