JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO–LACKLAND, Texas –
Maj. Gen. Chris Weggeman, Air Forces Cyber commander, provides closing remarks during a cybersecurity conference Feb. 8 at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
Several cybersecurity industry experts, policy makers and stakeholders also spoke during the event, which was hosted by Atlantic Council, Victor Pinchuk Foundation and Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
"The phrase 'cyber war,' to me is all wrong," Weggeman said during his closing remarks. "It's missing a word. And the word is cyber 'in' war. [It's the] same with 'cyber deterrence.' It's cyber 'in' deterrence. It's all about how does cyber play a role and contribute. It's a more accurate representation of the way we need to apply the capabilities and tool, tactics, techniques and procedures we have at our disposal."
