The U.S. military depends heavily on computer networks, and potential adversaries see cyberwarfare as an opportunity to pose a significant threat at low cost — a few programmers could cripple an entire information system. The Department of Defense (DoD) created the U.S. Cyber Command to counter cyber threats, and tasked the military services with providing support. This report examined the extent to which DoD and the 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. Includes recommend. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
