The cyber battlespace is everywhere, effecting everyone, all the time
Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Lorna Mahlock’s Messages for Cyber Security Awareness Month
By Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Lorna Mahlock - October 30, 2020
An animation of Director, Information C4 (IC4) Division, Deputy Commandant for Information (DC I) Brig. Gen. Lorna Mahlock’s statement, “The cyber battlespace is everywhere, effecting everyone, all the time. It’s game on and we need every Marine to know and play by varsity rules” in support of 2020’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The theme encourages individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.

A second animation features General Mahlock’s statement, “A common saying in combat zones is ‘complacency kills.’ We need to get to this mindset in the cyber battlespace. Assume your information is important. Assume the enemy is after it” in support of 2020’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Again, the theme encourages individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.

While cybersecurity is always a Marine Corps priority, the Corps is increasing its focus on it during the month to emphasize that all personnel need to do their part as a sentry to guard the Marine Corps at work and defend at home.
