Principal Cyber Advisor

The Principal Cyber Advisor advises the SECDEF and DSD on cyber related activities that support or enable DOD's missions in, through, and from cyberspace, in coordination with the appropriate PSAs.  The PCA leads a Department-level cross functional team that coordinates and oversees implementation of the DoD Cyber Strategy; assesses cyber programming and budgeting issues, making recommendation through the Program Budget Review process; informs Department-level cyber-related budgeting and acquisition processes and forums; and initiates projects to strengthen DoD's approach to cyber activities and missions.  The PCA does not have operational responsibilities for DoD operations and is not in the operational chain of command.
