Abstract:

The rapidly expanding and dynamic nature of the cyber domain requires that U.S. Cyber Command adopts maneuver warfares decentralized command and control doctrine to maximize military cyberspace operations. Since the establishment of U.S. Cyber Command in 2009, cyberspace operations have increasingly gained visibility across the U.S. government and DoD in particular. In that time, a centralized command and control structure has evolved to globally control military cyberspace operations from U.S. Cyber Command, vice delegating cyber forces and authorities to combatant commanders and below. Decentralized command and control will allow U.S. cyber forces to take advantage of tactical innovation in this emerging domain, to better allow for operational objective accomplishment by combatant and joint force commanders, and to succeed during cyberspace operation in an A2AD environment.
