US CYBERCOM Elevated to Combatant Command

In response to the changing face of warfare, US Cyber Command has been elevated to a combatant command.

Army Lt. Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, most recently commander of Army Cyber Command, will receive his fourth star as he succeeds retiring Navy Adm. Michael S. Rogers as CYBERCOM commander.

Nakasone will play a critical role in tasks that include training cyber warriors, advocating for more cybersecurity resources, and planning and conducting cyber operations.
