  • Trump Elevates Cyber Command to Unified Combatant Command Status

Elevating Cyber Command will "expand the number of the Defense Department's unified combatant commands to 10, putting cyber warfare on an equal footing with the Strategic Command, the Special Operations Command, and regional commands", explains the Agence France Press (AFP) news agency.

U.S. Cyber Command will be elevated to a full combatant command and might split from the National Security Agency to streamline the military's cyberspace operations, the White House announced Friday.

The move, the president said in a statement, will consolidate cyberspace operations under a single commander and ensure that "critical" cyberspace operations are adequately funded.

The White House statement does not name the first head cyber warrior since it remains a dual-hatted command, with the head of the National Security Agency running things.

Carter added that Cyber Command "was devised specifically to make the United States proficient and powerful in this tool of war". Trump said a recommendation will be made "at a later date".

The command's new position will help centralize operations, according to Mike Viscuso, chief technology officer of Waltham, Massachusetts-based cyber firm Carbon Black Inc. and a former NSA analyst. It operates closely with the National Security Agency, which is both a Department of Defense and an Intelligence agency.

But as other nations and foes expand their use of cyberspying and attacks, the determined to improve its ability to incorporate cyber operations into its everyday warfighting.

Since its beginning, CyberCom has been led by the director of the NSA, which is now Navy Adm. Michael S. Rogers. Sanchez and other experts note that if the NSA and Cyber Command do separate, they'll still need to collaborate, since the two organizations will continue to utilize numerous same tools and conduct operations around numerous same targets. The two organizations have sometimes competing objectives - for the NSA to collect intelligence, and for Cyber Command to achieve military objectives in cyberspace.

Officials originally said the new cyber effort would likely involve hundreds, rather than thousands, of new employees.

"While we welcome this elevation, there is much more to be done to prepare our nation and our military to meet our cybersecurity challenges", McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement.
