Air Force Brig. Gen. Charles Moore Jr. — Joint Staff deputy director of global operations — has said the Defense Department built its Cyber Mission Force to challenge adversaries’ cyberspace freedom and defend military information networks against threats, DoD News reported Wednesday.
Jim Garamone writes Moore told the House Armed Services Committee that efforts to develop the CMF are faced by challenges to equip the force, establish a training environment, recruit and retain a professional force and finalize the command-and-control structure.
Moore noted U.S. warfighting operations are “increasingly reliant” on cyber domain which affects weaponry, communications systems and force deployment, Garamone quoted.
He added the Joint Staff works with U.S. Cyber Command to continuously present options that could support global operations.
