US Cyber Command to Form Its Own Intelligence Hub

U.S. Cyber Command, tasked with defending Department of Defense IT networks and coordinating cyberspace operations, is developing its own intelligence hub, after years of relying on other information-gathering sources.

The endeavor, still in its infancy, is meant to secure and expand data collection and augment CYBERCOM’s understanding of foreign capabilities in the ever-expanding cyber realm.

The hub would complement the slate of well-established centers and intel-collecting practices with products that are sought-after but still not available.

Cyber as a discipline and general interest area has exploded in recent years. Paralyzing ransomware attacks, as was seen with Colonial Pipeline, and the bloody Russia-Ukraine war have pushed discussions about digital destruction to the popular fore.

Work has already been done by the National Ground Intelligence Center, the National Air and Space Intelligence Center and others, which feed the U.S. defense colossus scientific and technical information about faraway forces.

Much more however, is required.
