Pentagon outlines $23B cyber budget

The Pentagon put out a cybersecurity budget outline that calls for $23 billion in spending through fiscal 2018, according to Bloomberg.

The funding would be enough to expand the efforts on initiatives to protect computer networks and to develop offensive capabilities.

This increase will be felt as early as fiscal 2014, with the Defense Department already having requested $4.7 billion for such programs, which is an 18 percent increase from the $3.9 billion budgeted for fiscal 2013.
