GAO: Army Needs to Assess Risks in Multi-Domain Reorganization Plan

1 min read

The Government Accountability Office found through a study that the U.S. Army lacks personnel and risk assessments for new cyber and electronic warfare units intended to deter foreign threats. The Army intends to accelerate the activation of these units that sometimes initiate without cyber training and equipment modernization, GAO said Thursday.

The service branch is reorganizing its forces with a multi-domain approach and boosted focus on cyber operations by 2028. The accelerated rate of this effort leaves out required assessments of staffing, equipment and training risks, GAO noted.

The lack of these assessments would leave Army leadership unaware of potential future issues. GAO recommends the Army to assess these risks with consideration to the Intelligence, Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space unit, the 915th Cyber Warfare Support Battalion and other units being activated at accelerated rates.
