The Pentagon is still writing rules for combating cyberattacks, even though U.S. Cyber Command has been operating for more than a year, defense officials said Tuesday.

âThe [Pentagon] is working on standing rules of engagement which will give us the authorityâ to respond to attacks on vital computer networks, Air ForceGen. Keith Alexander, commander of Cyber Command, told a House hearing.

Madelyn Creedon, assistant secretary of defense for global strategic affairs, added that the work should be completed âin a couple of months.â

âWe have been working on this a long time,â she told the House Armed Services subcommittee on emerging threats and capabilities.
