ARCYBER to Handle Cybersecurity, Network Service Delivery for Army

The U.S. Army is consolidating responsibility for delivering cybersecurity and other services into its cyber command. Lt. Gen. John Morrison, deputy chief of staff, G-6, said the move could create unprecedented visibility from end to end, allowing the U.S. Army Cyber Command to take security burdens from tactical formations.

The effort is part of a plan to merge the Army’s enterprise and tactical systems into a single network, transitioning from a siloed, theater-centric model that made communications difficult. One of the service’s priorities during the ongoing buildout of the network is to institute zero-trust principles and other reforms to ensure data security.

The network’s development is informed by a capability portfolio review conducted in 2022 to gain a holistic understanding of network requirements, technologies and funding mechanisms. According to Morrison, the review allowed the Army to harmonize and prioritize requirements and align resources toward them, accelerating the modernization process.

He said progress has been made in folding the service’s networks into each other, DefenseScoop reported Friday.
