Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, commander ofÂ U.S. Army Cyber Command, has said he wants to rename ARCYBER to reflect the convergence between cyber and electronic warfare, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.
Fogarty proposed names such as âArmy Information Warfare Operationsâ and âArmy Information Dominance Command,â noting that âthe overlap is much deeperâ between the information and cyber domains and adding that âthe next stage of this is actually bringing all of that together.â
The U.S. Army is set to initiate such a merger soon.
In October, soldiers under the electronic warfare and cyber career fields â previously separate disciplines â will begin training together at the Army Cyber Center of Excellence as part of the serviceâs efforts to integrate the two tracks.
The newly-appointed ARCYBER chief also remarked that the name âCyber Commandâ may have been appropriate at the time the command was established in 2010, but in Fogartyâs opinion, âweâre well past that now.â
