We have seen the speed of warfare match the speed of light. An IP Officer ensures the delivery of communications capabilities. It doesn’t matter where you are. Submarine, surface ship, shore command. Teamwork is huge. Leadership, management, organizational skills. Your main job is to lead Sailors. To make sure they have whatever they need to defend the Navy’s networks and the information on it. Information technology management is one side of it and then you’ve got the communications management side of it. We’re looking at defending the networks. Radio frequency, internet, what have you. We get a lot of telephone calls from ships for a myriad of outages they might experience. We prefer to be neither preventative nor reactive necessarily but proactive. What can I bring to the fight and how can I help the Navy be more efficient at supporting the nation and defending the nation from adversaries?
