Gen. Paul Nakasone: CYBERCOM Requires an Expansion

1 min read

Gen. Paul Nakasone, who leads the U.S. Cyber Command, told Congress that the force requires an expansion to accommodate mission needs, FCW reported Thursday.

During a hearing with the Senate Armed Services Committee, he said USCYBERCOM may require over 133 teams to keep up with the technological development of U.S. adversaries. The expansion requirement comes as USCYBERCOM plans to spend $610M in fiscal year 2019, marking the force's first year as a standalone combatant command.

Nakasone also attributes the need to boost security requirements towards the presidential election in 2020.
