2015 DoD Cyber StrategyThe Department of Defense has released its 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy in April.  It is important to understand where the 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy fits in the National Strategy for Cyberspace.  So the 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy sets out the goals the Department of Defense has been tasked to achieve in support of the National Military Strategy and National Strategy for Cyberspace.

The 2015 DoD Cyber Strategy sets five strategic goals for its cyberspace missions:

1. Build and maintain ready forces and capabilities to conduct cyberspace operations;

2. Defend the DoD information network, secure DoD data, and mitigate risks to DoD missions;

3. Be prepared to defend the U.S. homeland and U.S. vital interests from disruptive or destructive cyberattacks of significant consequence;

4. Build and maintain viable cyber options and plan to use those options to control conflict escalation and to shape the conflict environment at all stages;

5. Build and maintain robust international alliances and partnerships to deter shared threats and increase international security and stability.



For book thirty nine of 2015, I enjoyed The Little Black Book of Innovation.

The Little Black Book of Innovation was a great book that opens a bunch of additional innovation roads.  This could really be used to teach innovation.  It highlights and provides a laundry list of some of histories best innovators, provides the names of the best books they’ve authored, and then goes further to provide the “Innovation for Dummies” summary of what the main principles of that specific innovator.

An example of these specific innovators that The Little Black Book of Innovation covers, was Thomas Edison.  His main innovation theme is summarized by one of his most famous quotes, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety nine percent perspiration.”  The author of The Little Black Book of Innovation covers each of his chosen innovators like this, and thus makes this book an exceptional innovation resources.

Great read and excellent Innovation reference book!

For book thirty eight of 2015, I enjoyed the book Kluge.

The book reviews the challenges and the nuances of the mind.  The examples of our quirks, the things that we do routinely that throw us off, and the traits of the human mind and body were all quite interesting to me.  The fact that it is all put together in a big kluge is the interesting part of this book and the author, Gary Marcus, points out the interesting parts.

Definitely a recommended read.
