To build this force, DOD is going to have to work with private companies, defense contractors and other outside vendors. The reason for this is simple: there isn’t enough expertise inside the Pentagon’s five walls to build a cyber army that’s capable of facing off with China, a country with a cyber force much more sophisticated than the one at DOD.
