Watch: The Future of War and the US Navy

How does the Navy's cyber requirements chief keep up with the lightning-fast evolution of network tools and threats? Rear Adm. Nancy Norton explains.

Rear Adm. Nancy Norton has run everything from a communications station in Bahrain to the C4ISR efforts of U.S. Pacific Command. Now she's in charge of the U.S. Navy's deputy director for cybersecurity, and its director of warfare integration for information warfare.
