The Army launched the Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER), the service's
component of the U.S. Cyber Command, this month, centralizing existing
resources in the Army's efforts to protect its global computer networks.
The new command brings a number of the Army's cyber resources under one
roof. That will ensure that the serviceâs policy, force structure,
capabilities development, resources and personnel can securely and
effectively work together in cyberspace at the tactical, strategic and
national levels, said Army spokesman John Cummings.
The new command, which incorporates Army organizations such as the Army
Network Enterprise Technology Command/9th Signal Command and parts of
the 1st Information Operations Command/Land, will be incorporated into
ARCYBER. ARCYBER also will oversee the cyber operations of the Army
Intelligence and Security Command.
Cummings said ARCYBER's personnel level will exceed 21,000 soldiers and
civilians. The Army added that there will be no new growth or effect on
the number of active-duty military and civilian personnel in the Army,
and existing Army funding will cover the cost of the command.
