There's growing pressure to change how the Pentagon approaches rotation and retirement so Cyber Command can retain more top cyber talent. The command reveals another "hunt forward" operation. And a new Army intelligence unit is already proving effective. This is CyberScoop for Aug. 18.

'End of the line' at Cyber Command

Cyber Command has long sounded alarms about its talent shortage and the imperative of improving STEM education. But many insiders say the agency could operate at a higher level and retain more people if it didn't have to rotate staff back to the services every two to four years. Former NSA and Cyber Command officials told CyberScoop that the forced rotation system imposed by the Defense Department leads talented people to leave the service and impacts the quality of Cyber Command’s work.

Hunting forward in Croatia

A team of Cyber National Mission Force operatives returned from Croatia in July. While there, those deployed worked side by side with Croatian cyber officials beating back cyber attacks from foreign adversaries discovered on Croatian networks. Cyber Command says its hunt forward operations’ teams “do not mitigate threats on partner networks, they enable their counterparts to pursue and address the threats found.” The Croatian operation is the 35th hunt forward operation - defined as a proactive cyber defense operation - to be undertaken by the Cyber National Mission Force, which is a subsidiary of Cyber Command.

New Army intel unit having big impact

Army Cyber Command’s new intelligence unit blending historical military intelligence activities with commercial data and public information is providing critical insights in a rapid manner to a newly established “triad” between the service’s cyber, missile defense and special operations organizations. Last week, the Army announced this new triad between Army Cyber Command, Army Space and Missile Defense Command and Army Special Operations Command, which aims to to deliver more options to commanders in an integrated fashion. “Probably the biggest contribution was one being able to take a fusion of traditional intelligence and what we were seeing publicly available information, in order to inform the commander forward of what we were seeing,” Lt. Gen. Maria Barrett, commander of Army Cyber Command, said during a presentation at the TechNet Augusta conference Wednesday. Mark Pomerleau writes in FedScoop.
