Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, head of Army Cyber Command, said he believes the command will adopt a new name to reflect its mission in the information warfare field, C4ISRNET reported Thursday.

“The intent is to provide a proposal that will change us from Army Cyber Command to Army Information Warfare Command because we believe that is a more accurate descriptor of what I’m being asked to do on a daily basis,” Fogarty said Tuesday at TechNet Augusta.

He said Army commanders should have the ability to understand, sense, decide, act and evaluate faster than the adversary by integrating disparate capabilities in the information environment, which includes the cyber domain, operational security, military deception, public affairs, psychological operations and space.

“It’s more frequent that we will have task to conduct a cyberspace effects operation to generate an [information operation] effect,” Fogarty told the publication. “Or we’re going to deliver [information operations] content. We’re bowing to the reality that offensively, this is what commanders in many cases want us to do for them.”
