GAO´s Cyber-Command Analysis

GAO´s Cyber-Command Analysis

The Department of Defense (DOD) d U.S. Cyber Command to counter cyber threats, and tasked the military services with providing support. GAO examined the extent to which DOD and U.S. Cyber Command have identified for the military services the (1) roles and responsibilities, (2) command and control relationships, and (3) mission requirements and capabilities to enable them to organize, train, and equip for cyberspace operations.
GAO´s analysis of "U.S. Cyber Command´s November 2010 Concept of Operations" - that describes the command and control relationships between U.S. Cyber Command and the geographic combatant commands - showed that it generally meets joint guidance and maps out U.S. Cyber Command´s organizational and operational relationships in general terms. However, greater specificity is needed as to the categories of personnel that can conduct various types of cyberspace operations in order for the military services to organize, train, and equip cyber forces.
The services may use military, civilian government, and contractor personnel to conduct cyberspace operations, and U.S. Cyber Command´s Concept of Operations describes general roles and responsibilities for cyberspace operations performed by U.S. Cyber Command´s directorates, the military services, and the respective service components. However, service officials indicated that DOD guidance was insufficient to determine precisely what civilian activities are permissible for certain cyber activities, that DOD is still reviewing the appropriate roles for government civilians in this domain, and that the military services may be constrained by limits on their total number of uniformed personnel, among other things. Without the specific guidance, the services may in the future have difficulty in meeting personnel needs for certain types of cyber forces.
