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,
VADM Denby Starling
Commander, Naval Network Warfare Command
