DEPUTY CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS FOR INFORMATION DOMINANCE (N2/N6) STAND-UP

Leadership,

FYSA (for your situational awareness). Formal establishment of N2/N6 represents a major transition in Navy's approach to Information Operations and serves as a bold statement of CNO's commitment to this emerging warfare area. As with any new initiative, there will be much to learn, and you will all have an opportunity to contribute.

Next on the agenda will be the formal establishment of CYBERFLEET/TENTH FLEET; exact date on hold pending confirmation of the Commander. Will keep you informed as the process continues.

We live in exciting times!

VR/WR and keep pressing,
HDS

VADM Denby Starling
Commander, Naval Network Warfare Command

I find this whole affair a little sad, because from my perspective this was always the standard operating procedure of the Naval Security Group Command. Whether you called it Information Warfare, Information Operations, Space Electronic Warfare, it was always the same for the Naval Security Group. In my opinion they may say we are on the threshold of something, but for me it's being only 10 steps behind of where we were.
