Report: Joint Cyber Centers To Link Cybercom, Combatant Commands

1 min read

Less than a month after the announcement of a new joint cyber center, a new Defense Department plan is in the works to establish those centers at each geographic command by June, Defense News reports.

Northern Command and the North American Aerospace and Defense Command will jointly run their cyber center and NORAD said it should reach operational status within 10 months.

Secretary Leon Panetta approved a new plan May 1, directing service branch secretaries, branch chiefs, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon’s chief information officer and Cyber Command to help put the new framework in place, Zachary Fryer-Biggs reported.

The additional joint cyber centers will link between combatant commanders and Fort Meade, Md.-based Cybercom, which will provide staff support at each command that will support both intelligence and operations, Fryer-Biggs reported.
