Fleet Cyber Command/Tenth Fleet
April 18, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, U.S. Fleet Forces Command Announce
Navy Cyber Administrative Realignment
U.S. Fleet Cyber Command (FLTCYBERCOM) and U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF) today announced an administrative realignment of the Navy’s cyber organizational structure designed to enhance efficiency and maintain optimal effectiveness.
According to Vice Adm. Barry McCullough, Commander, Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet, the realignment will enhance the Navy’s ability to remain a leader in cyberspace operations and provide the command and control structure necessary to achieve decision superiority in the information domain.
“This realignment solidifies the operational and administrative control of our cyber force and creates the foundation for a capability never before seen in the Navy,” said McCullough. “It will enhance the operational readiness of our cyber forces and help ensure we can maintain freedom of action and achieve military objectives in and through cyberspace by delivering integrated cyber, information operations, cryptologic and space capabilities to the Fleet.”
This change will realign administrative control (ADCON) of Navy cyber, network operations, information operations, cryptologic, and space forces consistent with the recent assignment of Navy cyber forces to U.S. Strategic Command, who in turn delegated operational control of these forces to U.S. Cyber Command, and the responsibilities of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command as the Service Cryptologic Component to the National Security Agency.
On April 18, FLTCYBERCOM will assume administrative control (ADCON) for the subordinate shore commands that they currently operationally employ. The Commander of Fleet Cyber Command will continue to serve as the Navy’s Service Cryptologic Component Commander (SCC) to the National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) and is responsible for man, train and equip (MT&E) functions of the consolidated cryptologic program (CCP) resourced cryptologic workforce.
Navy Cyber Forces (CYBERFOR), as delegated by Commander, USFF, remains the global C5I Type Commander responsible to man, train and equip all C5I forces afloat and ashore to generate required levels of current and future cyber force readiness.
The new cyber structure will provide unambiguous command and administrative control lines of authority and accountability of Navy cyber forces and optimal resource management. It provides clear accountability, authority and responsibility in the right entities by echelon to ensure we provide cyber forces that are ready for tasking and cyber activities that are effectively manned, trained, and equipped.
