The Defense Department has opened a regional center in Stuttgart, Germany, for its joint information network intended to expand the U.S. Armed Force’s access to information, FedScoop reported Monday.
Cory Bennett writes the enterprise operations center will work to manage the U.S. European Command’s and the U.S. Africa Command’s access to the joint information environment from various devices.
The Defense Information Systems Agency said the EOC will aim to bolster the information network’s security, resilience and response capability, according to the report.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins Jr., director of DISA, told the publication the operations center is intended to help the DoD protect its information network over the coming years.
Citing DISA’s release, Bennett reports the Defense Department intends for the EOC to enable combatant commanders to view JIE’s global operations and cyber defense through a centralized platform.
