ABSTRACT

Army Cyber Mission Force - Ambitions and Realities   [open pdf - 425KB]

"The 2010 US Army Training and Doctrine Command's Concept Capability Plan for Cyberspace Operations directed the Army to begin development of a Cyber Mission Force. The direction to build a Cyber Mission Force followed a number of cyberspace attacks conducted to support military operations. The foundation of the Cyber Mission Force will be the highly technical soldiers trained to operate in the cyberspace domain. To develop this force the Army will need to recruit, retain, and organize for success. Research has shown that persons drawn to highly technical fields, such as cyberspace, possess unique character traits that differ from the typical traits of Army enlistees. The research has further shown that compensation, branding, professional development models, and organization are key factors in the recruitment and retention of cyberspace professionals in both the military services and private sector."
