Abstract : Geographic Combatant Commands (GCC) do not have the structure in place to respond to Computer Network Attack (CNA) against Department of Defense (DoD) networks or to initiate Computer Network Exploitation (CNE) or CNA in response to a cyber incident in their areas of responsibility. 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.
