DefenseScoop reports that the U.S. Cyber Command and National Security Agency had difficulties in fostering communication and collaboration in dealing with cyber threats in the early days of its Integrated Cyber Center and Joint Operations Center but have since realized the importance of teaming up with other government agencies and private partners in thwarting threats.
Immediately after the establishment of the center in May 2018, integration of the watch floor with NSA National Cyber Security Operations Center partners, a Logistics Operations Cell, and the Operations Enabling Cell has been implemented to enable better threat information sharing.
"We have invited our interagency partners, like DHS and the FBI, along with our closest allies to join us in the command center. These partners are not just seeing Cyber Command and NSA's information, they have direct conduits to information coming from their systems, from their organizations and countries. This allows for real-time data sharing and an overall unity of effort which eliminates a lot of potential confusion, duplication of effort, helps establish clear roles and responsibilities, and allows us to operate with speed and agility," said former Cyber Command J3 Charles Moore.
