John Morrison: Army Continues Development of 20-Team Cyber Protection Brigade

cybersecurityThe U.S. Army has ramped up its efforts to field cyber protection teams as it works toward full operating capability for the future 20-team cyber protection brigade, C4ISR & Networks reported Wednesday.

Amber Corrin and Barry Rosenberg write that the brigade, which will be based at Fort Gordon in Georgia, will provide cyber support for either service-specific or national mission requirements.

“[What] we’re really working toward is that integrated concept of operations on how do we employ them across the very broad mission set,” Maj. Gen. John Morrison, commander of Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, told C4ISR & Networks in an interview.

He said the cyber protection brigade is under Army Cyber Command‘s operational control but will undergo specialized training from NETCOM.

The larger Army organization’s view of cybersecurity has also shifted to establish cyber skills as a discipline with dedicated personnel, capabilities and operations, the report said.
