Navy Adm. Michael Rogers, commander of U.S. Cyber Command, has issued a document that details how Cybercom and its subordinate units will work to address cyber threats, DoD News reported Tuesday.

The vision statement titled Beyond the Build: Delivering Outcomes Through Cyberspace calls for Cybercom to incorporate cyber operations into all national security and military efforts, Jim Garamone writes.

“We [must] maintain an operational mindset, with our networks and cyber capabilities led by commanders who understand they are always in real or imminent contact with adversaries,” Rogers wrote in the document.

Cybercom needs to create trained cyber forces, develop defensible networks, establish a control and command system and attain shared situational awareness in order to operationalize the cyber domain, he wrote.

Rogers, who also leads the National Security Agency as director, also urged Cybercom to collaborate with industry and government agencies in order to detect and prevent cyber attacks against data infrastructure.
