The Army plans to invest billions of dollars in cybersecurity and network modernization as part of the service's effort to achieve its technological advancement goals.

According to Army Under Secretary Gabe Camarillo, the service will invest:

  • More than $290 million in cloud migration;
  • More than $2 billion in cyber and cybersecurity operations and research; and
  • More than $9.8 billion in network modernization

According to a statement from Camarillo provided to Inside Defense, the Army’s digital transformation is “daunting in scope, incredibly complex and urgent.”

“But, if you take one thing away from this discussion, it’s that we -- meaning the Army, our partners in and outside government, and the people in this room -- can succeed and we have a plan to do so.”

Camarillo made the announcement on Thursday during the Army IT Day conference in McLean, VA, hosted by Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association International, Defense News reported.
