The U.S. Air Force is reorganizing several components of the 688th Cyberspace Wing to form a single group to oversee network and security operations, C4ISRNET reported Monday. 

Col. Joshua Rockhill, commander of the 26th Cyberspace Operations Group, said the new entity will serve as the lead integrator for security incidents at the tactical level and work with local network defenders to collect alerts and produce automated responses.  

“Our sense is [the reorganization] will be a significant improvement, but the experiment will bear the out,” Rockhill said. “We think this approach across people, process and tech is going to help the 688th Cyber Wing do its part to enable a digital future.” 

The 26th Cyber Operations Group, 690th Cyberspace Operations Group and the 38th Cyberspace Engineering Installation Group are the units the service is reorganizing as part of an experiment to establish a single cell.
