When I joined the Navy in 1970, the projection of Naval sea power was all about strategies to deploy Marines, ships, submarines and aircraft above, below, and on the sea. Today, there’s a new complication — cybersecurity — as data has become weaponized and hackers seek to attack all manner of targets — companies, cities, nations, even the ships where I once worked.

At the same time, cyber attackers, and their rising diversity and sophistication, offer an opportunity to innovate and grow new markets. You can see what that looks like in San Diego, where I live and work.
