Quoting from the 'quick facts' for the current GAO  report (this is a long running problem):

"In recent cybersecurity tests of major weapon systems DOD is developing, testers playing the role of adversary were able to take control of systems relatively easily and operate largely undetected.

DOD's weapons are more computerized and networked than ever before, so it's no surprise that there are more opportunities for attacks. Yet until relatively recently, DOD did not make weapon cybersecurity a priority. Over the past few years, DOD has taken steps towards improvement, like updating policies and increasing testing.

Federal information security—another term for cybersecurity—has been on our list of High Risk issues since 1997.

Not just CyberPatriot, but the entire CAP cadet cyber program.

CyberPatriot. AFA Cyber Camps. Unit activities. Cyber is rapidly growing in CAP.

Starting to become important to other branches, too. The Army has electronic warfare MOS's now.
