Report: Biden to Appoint Maj. Gen. William Hartman as Cyber Command Deputy

President Joe Biden is set to nominate Army Maj. Gen. William Hartman as the next deputy of U.S. Cyber Command in a major overhaul of the agency’s leadership, according to a news report. 

Hartman, the commander of Cyber Command’s Cyber National Mission Force since 2019, was nominated for his third star on Tuesday, according to congressional records. If the Senate confirms Hartman’s nomination, he will replace  Air Force Lt. Gen. Timothy Haugh, who was nominated to succeed Gen. Paul Nakasone as Cybercom commander, The Record reported.

Hartman previously served as deputy commander of the Joint Force Headquarters-Cyber Army, responsible for overseeing digital teams and operations in North America, the Middle East and Africa. He has served as a senior intelligence officer at the battalion and regimental level for the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Hartman graduated from the University of South Alabama, where he received his commission through the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps as an infantry officer. He is a recipient of various awards and commendations, including the Legion of Merit with oak leaf cluster, the Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf clusters and the Joint Commendation Medal.
