Nov. 5, 2018: Maj. Gen. Thomas Murphy has been assigned as the Director of the newly-created Protecting Critical Technology Task Force (PCTTF) office at the U.S. Department of Defense. PCTTF is charged with protecting the Defense Department’s technology investments from theft by rival countries. The new task force borrows manpower from more than a dozen other Defense Department offices, and the staff is scheduled to report directly to Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and Gen. Paul Selva, the Vice Chairman of the Defense Department’s Joint Chiefs of Staff. Shanahan is scheduled to assign a long-term Director and Deputy Director for the office, but in the meantime, the office will be led by Murphy, who is a senior official at the Office of the Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics.
