"Joint forces will conduct globally-ranging cyber warfare," says USJFCOM

Yesterday, the U.S. Joint Forces Command released the Joint Operating Environment 2010 report. The report details the future nature of the operational environment and how it will influence the function and structure of the joint force.

Within the cyber realm, the report sees the continuation of the rapid developments in technology, improving the capabilities of the Joint Force. “Joint forces will conduct globally-ranging cyber warfare, either as independent operations or in support of deployed units, manipulating or overwhelming adversary systems,” according to the report.

The report cautioned against an over-reliance on networks however.

“Many of those same advances also will be available to America’s opponents, who will use them to attack, degrade, and disrupt communications and the flow of information. It is essential that the Joint Force be capable of functioning in a hostile information environment, so as not to create an Achilles’ heel by becoming too network dependent,” the report stated.

It also called for increased education for U.S. military personnel regarding cybersecurity. “Joint Force personnel must always understand that every networked computer is on the front line. Everyone who logs on is a cyber defender first.”
