 Department&#8217;s applications, web sites, and networks to expose vulnerabilities.&nbsp; The pilot program is anticipated to launch in April 2016.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 the security and delivery of networks, products, and digital services.&nbsp; The program, led by the Defense Digital Service (DDS) and launched by Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter in November 2015, will use commercial sector crowdsourcing to allow qualified participants
 to conduct vulnerability identification and analysis on the DoD&#8217;s public web pages.&nbsp; Participants will be required to register and submit to a background check, and once vetted will participate in a controlled, limited duration program that will allow them
 to identify vulnerabilities on a predetermined DoD system.&nbsp; Participants may be eligible for monetary awards and other recognition.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 by Defense Secretary Carter on March 1, 2016, at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, CA.&nbsp; Carter said defending DoD networks and weapon systems is, &#8220;job one for the Department of Defense in cyberspace.&#8221;&nbsp; He noted the DoD plans to invest $35 billion over
 the next five years to defend DoD networks, to help other agencies defend against cyberattacks from abroad, and to provide offensive cyber options that can be used in conflicts, such as countering the Islamic State (ISIL) in Syria and Iraq.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
