Analytic Support to Operations
In this talk, LTC John J. Agnello will discuss how data analytics and data science principles support Cyberspace Operations, by providing Combat Support Effort, akin to the relationship between close air support and ground maneuver operations. John will highlight how this approach synchronizes with other efforts in prescribing how we fight, organize, train and equip across the DOTMLPF-P (Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities and Policy). These concepts derive from proven scientific principles, data science, joint doctrine, NIST standards, and operational experience.
