The U.S. Transportation Command has partnered with intelligence and law enforcement agencies to form a joint command-and-control center that works to protect its computer systems and data from cyber threats, Reuters reported Thursday.

Andrea Shalal writes that Transcom Commander Gen. Paul Selva said that his main concern is the potential for the manipulation or destruction of data.

Selva told reporters that the command has tested its ability to continue logistics operations via manual systems if its networks are shut down due to threats.

The report said TRANSCOM has also worked with commercial airlines and other contractors that help transport troops and military cargo to report incidents of breaches on their private networks.
