Command and Control of Cyberspace Forces

Command and Control of Cyberspace Forces

I would like to signal two really interesting reports about Command & Control forces and operations in cyberspace.

The first one is "U.S. CYBER COMMAND SUPPORT TO GEOGRAPHIC COMBATANT COMMANDS" by Colonel Harry M. Friberg.
This paper will provide the definitions required to understand the issues that confront operations in cyberspace. It will provide an overview of the legal issues, technical issues, and will provide a recommendation for the structure necessary to enable the GCCs to overcome those issues and to effectively leverage the capabilities provided by U.S. Cyber Command in support of operations within their area of responsibility.
This paper recommends the creation of a Joint Cyber Functional Component Command as part of the GCC structure to integrate cyberspace operations into their contingency plans and to enable response to cyberspace incidents within their area of responsibility.

The second is "The Digital Kasserine Pass: The Battle Over Command and Control of DoD’s Cyber Forces" by Colonel David C. Hathaway.
The challenge of this paper is to analyze and advise the develop of a command and control structure that allows USCYBERCOM to ute its global responsibilities while also allowing the geographic commanders the ability to effectively integrate cyber operations into their plans and operations.
Two predominant models have emerged: the USSOCOM model and the USTRANSCOM model, the former a very regionally focused structure and the latter very centrally focused. In order to determine the best command and control structure for cyberspace within DoD, the author conducted interviews throughout USCYBERCOM, its service components, and several of the unified commands. Additionally, the author observed a top cyber exercise in preparation for US Pacific Command’s (USPACOM) annual Exercise Terminal Fury. The author concludes that a hybrid model with features of the regional USSOCOM model and the centralized USTRANSCOM model best takes into account the global nature of cyberspace, while enabling integration of regional cyber effects.
